Man charged in fatal stabbing in St. Louis suburb



FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) — Prosecutors charged a man Saturday with fatally stabbing another man on New Year’s Eve.

St. Louis County prosecutors charged Joseph Harris with second-degree murder, armed criminal action, and tampering with evidence in connection with Friday’s stabbing.

Florissant police said in court documents that officers found Thomas Harris dead in a bedroom of Joseph Harris’ house and a blood trail led from the bedroom to the kitchen. It wasn’t immediately clear if the two men were related.

Police said the 39-year-old Joseph Harris admitted to killing Thomas Harris after he was attacked. Investigators found several knives in the kitchen but none of them had blood on them.
