An 18-year-old is charged in the death of a man who was found at a house fire last week.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office, Jamil Eason was charged with second degree murder in the death of 45-year-old Jay Rosio.

Authorities say crews were putting out the fire on the 3000 block of Humboldt Avenue North in Minneapolis, when they found Rosio face down on the floor.

Rosio appeared to have stab wounds to his upper chest and several lacerations to his head and face.

A cell phone and computer that were taken from the home led to Eason's arrest.
