    Prosecutors say Morales stabbed 37-year-old Lee Daniels, of Thompson, Connecticut, on July 20.

    Daniels was found in his car in the parking lot of the Worcester YMCA with a stab wound to the heart.

    Witnesses told police the men had argued before the stabbing. Police say they recovered a knife that has the suspect's fingerprints on it.

    Morales disappeared after the stabbing but was caught earlier this month in New Jersey.

    Morales' lawyer did not argue for bail and did not comment on the charges.
