    Police are investigating a fatal stabbing at a Lynn, Massachusetts, rooming house. 

    It was the second homicide of the weekend in the city. 

    A spokesman for the Essex district attorney says officers responding to the rooming house on Union Street at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday arrested 66-year-old resident Richard Davis. 

    Davis was ordered to be held without bail after being charged with murder for allegedly stabbing another resident during his arraignment on Monday. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer. 

    The victim's name was not immediately released. 

    The DA's spokesman says the stabbing at the rooming house is not connected to the shooting of 34-year-old Pedro Carrillo at about 2 a.m. Sunday. No arrests in that shooting have been announced. 

    Davis' next court appearance will be Sept. 7.
