A Boston man faced a judge Monday after being charged with murder in his neighbor's stabbing death.
Rodney Bloomfield, 44, of Dorchester, allegedly stabbed 40-year-old Tony Massey to death at Massey's home on Bradshaw Street Thursday morning.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, Massey and two young relatives were about to leave the home when Bloomfield approached them in the driveway. The suspect allegedly threatened to kill Massey, who prosecutors say got out of his car with another knife.
The two men fought with the knives and Massey fell down. "Are you ready to die today?" Bloomfield asked Massey as he stood over him, prosecutors allege.
Massey taken to Tufts Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Bloomfield was also injured and drove himself to Boston Medical Center. He was arrested Friday and charged with murder.
