A Philadelphia man is in custody after he allegedly killed the boyfriend of his estranged wife.

Police say Stefan Curry-Burkett broke into the apartment of his estranged wife on Blackwood-Clementon Road in Pine Hill on Monday around 4:50 a.m. Curry-Burkett allegedly climbed onto a balcony and entered through a sliding glass door.

Once inside, police say Curry-Burkett attacked 26-year-old Michael Cogan and stabbed him to death. Police say Cogan was in a relationship with Curry-Burkett’s estranged wife and was specifically targeted.

Investigators say Curry-Burkett tried to flee the scene but was captured by responding police officers.

He was arrested and charged with murder. He is scheduled for an arraignment on Tuesday at 11 a.m.
