AUDUBON, N.J. (AP) — An 18-year-old was charged with murder in the stabbing death of a New Jersey deli owner, police said Sunday.

Dyheam Williams, of Lindenwold, was charged Sunday in the fatal stabbing of Jerome Pastore outside the Shamrock Delicatessen in Audubon, according to authorities in Camden County and Haddon Township.

Police responded to the deli shortly before 5 p.m. Friday on reports of a stabbing. Officers found the 52-year-old Pastore lying just across the street from the deli he owned, officials said in a news release. He had stab wounds throughout his body. The West Berlin man was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

Williams was arrested at his home and is currently in Camden County Jail. It is unknown if he has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
