BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A 52-year-old man has been charged with second degree murder for allegedly stabbing a woman to death in January.

Jerome Mellion is accused of killing Wanda Ortiz, 48, outside her apartment on Plank Rd.

He was charged with first degree murder, but prosecutors decided against seeking the death penalty after talking with the victim's family.

Mellion faces life in prison if convicted.
