POMPANO BEACH, FL.- A Pompano Beach man was arrested on a second-degree murder charge, after police said he stabbed his roommate more than 25 times during an argument.
    
Broward County Sheriff officials said they responded to a disturbance Saturday night and were greeted at an apartment by 22-year-old Samuel Dulavoix, who was covered in blood. Through an open door, officials said deputies could see a pile of blankets on top of a shape consistent with a human body.
    
Dulavoix told investigators that he and his 39-year-old roommate Rahmil Alexander were arguing over money. Dulavoix said during the confrontation, he stabbed his roommate. Authorities said Dulavoix attempted to clean up the scene and conceal the body.
    
The Broward County Medical Examiner ruled the case a homicide at the scene and said Alexander died of multiple stab wounds.
    
Dulavoix was taken into custody and charged with second-degree murder.
    
The suspect said the two had been living together for about a year.
