JAMESBURG, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a second man who they say was stabbed to death inside a New Jersey home last week before it was set on fire, allegedly by the son of one of the victims.

Middlesex County prosecutors on Tuesday identified Gregory Fischer as one of the men killed in the Nov. 6 fire in Jamesburg. Fischer and Clifford Kitchen, both 53, lived in the home with the latter’s 21-year-old son, Jaree Kitchen.

The younger Kitchen is charged with two counts of murder, a weapons offense and single counts of aggravated arson, hindering prosecution and destroying physical evidence. He’s due to appear in court Wednesday, but it’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.
