POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Pompano Beach man is in jail on a murder charge after police say he stabbed his roommate more than 25 times during an argument.
Broward County Sheriff officials say they responded to a disturbance Saturday night and were greeted at an apartment by 22-year-old Samuel Dulavoix, who was covered in blood. Through an open door, officials said sheriff deputies could see a pile of blankets on top of a shape consistent with a human body.
Dulavoix told investigators that he and his 39-year-old roommate were arguing over money and that during the confrontation he stabbed him. Authorities say Dulavoix also made attempts to clean up the scene. The roommate was not identified, pending next-of-kin notification.
Dulavoix was taken into custody and charged with second-degree murder.
