SAUGERTIES, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a man suspected of stabbing another man to death at a Hudson Valley apartment was arrested several hours later aboard a train in Washington, D.C.

Police say they found 40-year-old Rameen Perry with multiple stab wounds early Thursday on the second floor of a home in the Ulster County town of Saugerties (SAW’-ger-teez). Perry was rushed to a hospital in nearby Kingston, where he died.

Police say the suspect, 26-year-old Earl Edwards of Saugerties, was found on an Amtrak train in the nation’s capital Thursday afternoon and taken into custody by Amtrak police.

Edwards is charged with second-degree murder. He’s awaiting extradition back to New York.

Police haven’t described the relationship between the two men.

It wasn’t immediately known if Edwards has a lawyer.
