A 43-year-old Buffalo man has been charged with killing a man in the city's Kaisertown neighborhood last month, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

David Miszko faces a second-degree murder charge in the Sept. 13 fatal stabbing of Richard D'Andrea in the vicinity of Spann Street, prosecutors said in a news release.

Miszko was arraigned by Erie County Court Judge James Bargnesi, who ordered him held without bail.

On Sept. 14, Buffalo police said the fatal stabbing occurred on Barnard Street, near Clinton Street. Barnard is six blocks east of Spann.

Police said the victim was stabbed multiple times and died at the scene.

At the time, police said the suspect was a man who was known to the victim.

D'Andrea, 34, was released from prison five months before he was stabbed to death. He was sentenced in 2007 to 12 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the slaying of his grandmother, Vel Sedita, in her Kaymar Drive home in Amherst. 

He was released on parole on April 2, 2020 from Attica State Correctional Facility, according to a state Department of Corrections and Community Service record.
