Murder charges have been filed against a 65-year-old Newark man who allegedly stabbed another man to death inside a city apartment.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says Earl Fauntleroy also faces weapons charges in connection with the stabbing, which occurred shortly before 11 p.m. Friday. His bail was set at $750,000, and it was not known Saturday if Fauntleroy had retained an attorney.
 
Murray says Fauntleroy fought with 64-year-old Morris Lee of Orange shortly before Lee was stabbed inside the Sanford Avenue apartment, but further details on the argument and stabbing were not disclosed. Lee was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital.
