A man is under arrest and his loved ones mourning in the wake of the stabbing death of a romantic rival, police said Sunday.
Investigators say Michael Lebron,40, was visiting his ex-girlfriend late Saturday night at her Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment, when he got into an argument with the woman’s new beau, identified as Pedro Marquez, 46. This is when Marquez allegedly stabbed Lebron in the torso.
Lebron — who had multiple stab wounds — was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.
Police arrested Marquez at the scene, charging him with murder and felony weapons possession. According to police, Marquez of Hollywood, Florida — is no stranger to crime; he has a rap sheet with several drug-related offenses.
