A 51-year-old White Plains man was charged with manslaughter last week in connection with the fatal stabbing of a man found in a parking garage in Yonkers.

According to the Yonkers Police Department, officers discovered an unconscious man inside a garage at 25 Prospect St. on April 12 at 2:16 a.m. The unidentified man was pronounced death at the scene by EMS personnel and the area was cordoned off while officers initiated a criminal investigation.

Detectives from the Major Case Squad, Crime Scene Unit, and Digital Forensics Unit discovered the the victim sustained multiple stab wounds. Further investigation revealed the victim possessed cell phones that did not belong to him.

Records indicated that the phones belonged to Necker Charles in White Plains. Detectives followed additional leads, including surveillance camera footage and witness accounts which identified Charles as the primary suspect.

Police determined that Charles was involved in a dispute with the victim over property. Additional surveillance camera footage was located that captured Charles discarding a knife in a nearby sewer. The knife was recovered and will be processed for forensic evidence.

Detectives located Charles in a vehicle in Getty Square later that day. He was apprehended without incident and was charged with Manslaughter 1st Degree. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending family notification.

“I applaud our Detective Division for their tremendous work on this case,” said Yonkers Police First Deputy Chief Joseph Monaco“In just 14 hours from the discovery of the crime, detectives were able to place a suspect into custody and recover the potential weapon used in the stabbing. We do not tolerate acts of violence in this city, and perpetrators should be aware that our officers and detectives will work tirelessly to bring you to justice should you attempt to do so here.”
