June 8, 2019

EASTON, Md. (AP) — A suspect has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a man in the locker room of a YMCA on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Police in Easton say 31-year-old Andre Lamont Price Jefferson faces multiple charges including first- and second-degree murder and armed robbery.

Authorities have accused Jefferson of stabbing 72-year-old John Cassidy Thursday at the Talbot County YMCA. They say Cassidy died of his injuries at a hospital.

Police say Jefferson stabbed Cassidy with a knife multiple times and then tried to leave the YMCA but people stopped him.

Police say Jefferson also was found with stab wounds and treated at a hospital.

Records show Jefferson is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Attorneys with Talbot County’s Public Defender’s Office could not be reached by phone Saturday.
