WORCESTER, Mass. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – The suspect in a fatal stabbing of a Connecticut man in Massachusetts nearly three months ago has been apprehended in New Jersey.
A spokesman for the Worcester district attorney tells The Telegram & Gazette that 20-year-old Jose Morales was arrested Thursday in Newark.
Morales is a suspect in the July 20 death of 37-year-old Lee Daniels, of Thompson, Connecticut. A warrant on a murder charge was issued for Morales on Aug. 3.
Daniels was found in his car in the parking lot of the Worcester YMCA suffering from a stab wound to the heart.
Witnesses told police the two men had been in a confrontation before the stabbing. Police say they recovered a knife that has the suspect’s fingerprints on it.
