The Record newspaper reports that 20-year-old Jonathan Lafontaine of Totowa faces first-degree murder charges and weapons offenses in the death of Brian Topoleski, an 18-year-old Cedar Grove resident.

The stabbing occurred after a series of events that apparently started late Sunday night and ended at a Little Falls home where a friend of Lafontaine lives.

After members of the two groups exchanged angry words, Lafontaine allegedly went into the home and grabbed two knives.

Authorities say Lafontaine soon approached Topoleski and punched him before stabbing him in the chest multiple times. Topoleski was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later.
