PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Pascagoula police say one man is dead and another is charged with murder after a stabbing in an apartment where both lived.

The victim was 40-year-old Eddie Vergail Stanton Sr., who was dead when an ambulance crew arrived on the scene late Saturday at Cambridge Park Apartments.

A police department news release says 45-year-old Carlton Jerome Gholder is charged with murder. He was being held in the Jackson County jail on Sunday awaiting an initial court appearance.

It was not immediately clear whether Gholder is represented by an attorney.
