GUTTENBERG, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old man has been charged with murder in the stabbing death of a New Jersey man found outside a restaurant.

Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said Saturday that Reidel Carrasco, of West New York, surrendered to Guttenberg police shortly after the death of 28-year-old Antonio Bouza, of Guttenberg, Friday night.

Police responding to a report of a fight at the Rumba Cubana restaurant around 9:45 p.m. found Bouza on the ground outside with a stab wound to his chest. He was pronounced dead about an hour later at a local hospital.

Carrasco is charged with first degree murder and weapons violations. It wasn’t immediately known if he’s represented by a lawyer.
