The stabbing took place in an apartment on Parkedge Avenue in the town and the victim's body was found Thursday.

Simmons is being held without bail and is scheduled to return for a felony hearing on April 17. He faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison if convicted on the charge.

Authorities have released few details about the case. Town police said they responded at 5:30 p.m. Thursday to a report of a suspicious death in a residence on Parkedge, but provided no further information.
