A 28-year-old Buffalo man was charged with one count of second-degree murder on Friday before Erie County Court Judge Christopher J. Burns.
Quinton Turner allegedly stabbed Ronald Green six times on the morning of Jan. 5, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and East Ferry Street.
The defendant then fled to North Carolina where he was located by the U.S. Marshals Service, who returned him to Buffalo for prosecution.
He is currently being held without bail. If convicted, Turner faces a maximum 25 years to life in prison.
The announcement, by Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn, commended the work of Buffalo Police Detectives Raymond Krug and Timothy Rooney and members of the U.S. Marshals for their roles in the investigation and apprehension.
