Union County prosecutors say 24-year-old Saint Merilan of Newark was also charged with aggravated assault and weapons offenses in the indictment handed up by a county grand jury late last week.

The charges stem from an August brawl in Elizabeth involving Merilan and 25-year-old Marchkenson Flobert. Authorities have not said what sparked the fight, but they say it ended with Merilan stabbing Flobert.

A phone number for Merilan could not be located Wednesday, and it was not known if he has retained a lawyer.
