An 18-year-old Cayuga County man has been arrested in connection with the death of his stepfather.

Logan Jones is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 41-year-old John Welsh.

Sheriff’s deputies say they were called to a home on Lakeview Drive in the Town of Fleming for the report of a stabbing late Monday night. When deputies arrived, they found Welsh unresponsive. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Jones was taken into custody without incident nearly two hours later and is currently being held in the Cayuga County Jail.
