Christopher James, 23, of Binghamton, was charged Sunday with second-degree murder.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged the suspect stabbed Kevin Pierson to death in his Maplewing Drive residence, where he was found dead on Feb. 12, 2010.

An acquaintance checking on Pierson’s welfare had called 911 upon discovering blood at the entrance of the victim’s apartment. Responding officers found his body in his bedroom, police said.

James will be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Central Islip.
