The Warren County Prosecutor's Office says Daniel J. Lawrence, 26, is charged in the murder. 

The victim was found stabbed multiple times near Route 57 and Flower Avenue around 6:17 p.m. The man was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police recovered a three-inch folding knife that was allegedly used in the attack. Investigators believe the suspect and the victim were familiar with each other.
