ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Police have made an arrest in the stabbing death of a 16-year-old Connecticut boy.

Enfield police on Tuesday announced that 18-year-old Shyhiem Adams was charged with manslaughter in the death of Justin Brady.

Brady was found stabbed in the front yard of a home in town just after midnight Monday.

Adams is being held on $1 million bond pending arraignment later Tuesday. His case was not listed in online court records and it could not immediately be determined if he had retained a lawyer.

Police Chief Alaric Fox says the victim and the suspect knew each other and called it an isolated incident.
