Suspect surrenders in Savin Hill stabbing
By Globe Staff
A man turned himself in to Boston Police late last night after being indicted on a murder charge for allegedly stabbing a 20-year-old to death in his Savin Hill apartment last January.
Steven Odegard, 41, is expected to be arraigned this afternoon in Suffolk Superior Court. He is accused of the Jan. 17 stabbing death of Daniel Yakovleff. Prosecutors say Yakovleff, 20, was found dead of multiple stab wounds in Odegard's bed in an apartment on Tuttle Street, which is between Dorchester Avenue and the Southeast Expressway.
Odegard was indicted Monday by a Suffolk County grand jury after an 11 month inquiry that included testimony from 16 witnesses. He surrendered at a police station in Dorchester late last night.
