    A 19-year-old Newark man is wanted by police for allegedly stabbing his mother's boyfriend to death Monday night.

    Police say Lawrence Williams got into an argument with 38-year-old David Collier at his mother's home on Treacy Avenue Monday night, then stabbed Collier. He then fled the home.

    Collier was taken to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 10:45 p.m., the Essex County prosecutor's office said.

    Williams remains at large and is presumed to be armed and dangerous, said the prosecutor's office. He is wanted on charges of murder and weapons offenses.
