A Miami Beach man was arrested Sunday after police say he stabbed his roommate to death with a kitchen knife, authorities said.

According to arrest records, Miami Beach police found 55-year-old Daniel Rodolico on the apartment floor with multiple stab wounds to the torso, arms, neck and back after responding to a disturbance in the 7300 block of Wayne Avenue in North Beach.

His roommate, Jose Antonio Derose, admitted to attacking Rodolico during an argument, police said.

“Neighbors heard frantic calls for help from the victim,” according to the arrest report.

Derose was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, jail records show. He was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center for medical clearance after suffering minor cuts on his hand, police said.

He was booked into Miami-Dade County jail on Monday with no bond.
