A 22-year-old Howard County man — stabbed last year during a domestic dispute in Southwest Baltimore — died last week, police said.

Charles Hopson of the 4900 block of Blue Wing Court was found lying in a driveway of a home in the 1100 block of Cooks Lane on March 31, 2010. He was placed on life support and moved to a nursing home, where he died from his injuries on March 5.

Detective Kevin Brown, a city police spokesman, said investigators believe the stabbing was domestic-related and they have a suspect. The case remains open.

Hopson has no criminal record in Maryland, according to online court records.
