Posted: Updated:

Police say a man was killed inside his Midwood home Sunday morning, and a relative of the victim is in custody.

Officials say 54-year-old Ramon Marrero was found inside an apartment at 1306 Ocean Ave. near Avenue H with stab wounds to his torso just before 10:30 a.m.

He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A few hours later, police say 44-year-old Norberto Lozada, a relative of Marrero, turned himself in. Lozada is now facing second-degree murder charges for the incident.

Sources say it may have been the result of a domestic dispute.
