(NECN) - Police have arrested a Revere, Mass., man and charged him in the stabbing death of Revere trailer park resident.

The Suffolk County District Attorney has indentified the victim as 50-year-old Ronald Russo, of Winthrop, Mass., who was found stabbed to death in a trailer at Lee Trailer Park on Revere Beach Parkway at about 8:30 Saturday night. State police arrested Peter Deconinck, 46, and charged him with Russo's murder.

A neighbor and friend of Russo says he found the body when he went over to the trailer.

Police said Deconinck stabbed Russo in an altercation. Deconinck was detained in the area of Beachmont MBTA station in Revere a short time after police responded to the crime scene. Deconinck was found with blood on his clothing and a laceration to his hand. He was later interviewed and charged with the murder.

Deconinck is expected to be arraigned Monday at Chelsea District Court.
