    A Pompano Beach man has been charged with second-degree murder after stabbing his roommate to death Saturday night, authorities said.

    Samuel Dulavoix, 22, was covered in blood when he answered the door to Broward Sheriff's Office deputies responding to a disturbance call at 3208 Marine Drive just after 9 p.m., authorities said.

    Officers spotted a pile of bloody blankets on top of a body, identified as that of Rahmil Alexander, 39, according to the BSO. The Broward County Medical Examiner ruled the case a homicide at the scene and said Alexander died of multiple stab wounds.

    Dulavoix told homicide investigators that he and Alexander had been living together for about a year. He said they argued over money when Dulavoix stabbed the victim more than 25 times, police said. He later tried to clean up the scene and hide the body.

    Dulavoix was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment to superficial cuts on his hands before being released to authorities. He is being held without bond and faces a charge of second-degree murder. It is unknown if Dulavoix has an attorney.
