On Saturday, police said Kevin Charles Witchekan, 29, had been charged with second degree murder and robbery, along with a number of related charges.
Police were called to the apartment building located at 129 Avenue 64 Street just after 1 am, Wednesday for a weapons complaint – but when they arrived found the dead body of a man nearby.
Following the autopsy, police confirmed 41-year-old Daniel Barata had died from a stab wound.
