By Associated Press

WALTON, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they've charged a former
Florida man in the fatal stabbing of a 20-year-old man in a rural upstate New York village.

Police in Walton in Delaware County say 20-year-old Lejuan Wainwright was charged with second-degree murder in Saturday's late-night stabbing that occurred during an argument with the victim outside a residence in the village, 75 miles southwest of Albany.

Authorities haven't released the victim's name.

Wainwright was sent to the Delaware County Jail without bail. A message left at the office of his attorney, Aaron Dean, wasn't immediately returned.

Police say Wainwright moved to Walton from St. Petersburg, Fla., earlier this year.
