The police have identified the victim of Friday’s fatal stabbing as 61-year-old Cheryl Robin Schafer.
Schafer’s body was found in her apartment by police responding to a call of a suspicious package. Police said they were investigating the case as a domestic incident, and immediately arrested Charles Elvis Sykes.
Sykes, 59, has been charged with second-degree murder while armed. He was presented in court this week and is being held without bail. He is next due in court on May 9.
