NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a man suspected of burglarizing a home and stabbing the owners when they interrupted him has been arrested.

Police say 20-year-old Dante Viggiano was being held on murder, attempted murder and burglary charges in Sunday's stabbings on Staten Island.

Sixty-seven-year-old Peter Gialluisi was stabbed in the face and hand during a struggle, and was later pronounced dead. His 66-year-old wife was stabbed in the head, neck and back. She was stable.

A neighbor told the Staten Island Advance the Gialluisis were returning from their son's house in New Jersey, where they had gone to celebrate their birthdays. They arrived to find a man in their home.

Viggiano was in custody pending arraignment. A message was left at a number connected to his address.
