HANNIBAL, N.Y. (AP) — A teenager has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of another man at a party in upstate New York.
23-year-old Sean Leonard was stabbed in the torso shortly before 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the town of Hannibal in Oswego County. Leonard was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Nineteen-year-old Markee Cathcart was arrested on a manslaughter charge in Leonard's death.
Police say Leonard and Cathcart argued at a house party and the dispute turned violent.
Cathcart, of Phoenix, New York, was arraigned later Saturday in Hannibal Town Court.
He told reporters "I'm not guilty by any means."
