The stabbing happened at an apartment on Lewis Street around 10:22 a.m. Lynn Police said the fight began as an argument over money.
George McBrier, 50, of Lynn, was arrested and charged with the murder of 27-year-old Keenan Barr, also of Lynn, police announced Sunday night.
The Essex District Attorney’s Office said the victim was repeatedly stabbed in the chest and shoulder.
