NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A homeless man has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a McDonald’s employee in the Bronx, police said Thursday.
Rafael Gonzalez, 48, turned himself in to authorities Wednesday night, police said. He was arrested on murder and manslaughter charges, police said.
The incident happened around 4:30 a.m. Monday in the parking lot of a McDonald’s on Broadway and West 236th Street.
