Authorities said one of two men stabbed outside the father and son’s home last week died the next morning.
Charges against a Burlington County man arrested with his son in two stabbings outside their home last week have been upgraded to include murder following the death of one of the victims, authorities said Tuesday.
The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office initially had charged Supreme Life, 56, and Antoine Ketler, 32, each with two counts of aggravated assault in the stabbings, which occurred around 10:40 p.m. Sunday outside Life and Ketler’s home on Coriander Drive in Lumberton.
One of the two victims, Moriah Walker, 26, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was pronounced dead early the next morning at a hospital in Camden.
The prosecutor’s office on Tuesday said the charges against Life had been upgraded to murder, first-degree attempted murder, conspiring to commit murder and weapons offenses.
Authorities said the second victim, Raheem Williams, 23, of Queens, survived after undergoing surgery for a stab wound.
Both men reportedly were stabbed during a fight outside Life and Ketler’s home.
The prosecutor’s office has not publicly identified the reason for the fight, and it was not known Tuesday whether either Life or Ketler had an attorney who could comment on the charges.
