A trial is set to begin this week for the man charged with homicide for a fatal stabbing last fall.

Leonard Jordan, 57, is charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of John Allen, 56, of Erie.

The stabbing happened inside an apartment on E. 5th St. in Erie in Oct. 2018.

The coroner said Allen died of stab wounds to his neck and head.

At the defandant's preliminary hearing, police said a recorded conversation implicating Jordan led to his arrest. They did not say who recorded it or how they obtained it.

Police also said they have surveillance video of Jordan walking toward the victim's home.
