LYNN, Mass. (AP)-- A Lynn man is headed to court to face a murder charge in connection with a fatal stabbing in the city.
A spokeswoman for the Essex district attorney's office says 32-year-old Isaac Hendricks is charged with killing Jonathan Laporte of Dedham on Sunday.
Authorities tell The Daily Item that the men intervened in a fight between two women at Hendricks' home.
Police responded at about 7:25 a.m. Sunday.
Officers arrived to find the 26-year-old Laporte covered in blood and unable to speak but conscious and breathing. He was taken to Salem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A knife and a machete were recovered at the scene.
It was not clear if Hendricks had a lawyer. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Lynn District Court on Monday.
