Police solved one of the city’s recent murder cases Thursday as county and federal officers tracked down and arrested the suspected killer who had stabbed Edward Kevin Nock to death earlier this week at Donnelly Homes, authorities announced.

Isaac J. Grey, 31, of Beakes Street, Trenton, was arrested in Philadelphia by Mercer County homicide investigators with the assistance of U.S. Marshals, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office. Grey has been charged with murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Grey fled to the City of Brotherly Love after allegedly stabbing Nock about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday in Trenton. Police found Nock, 43, lying on the floor of a Donnelly Homes apartment in the first block of Beakes Street suffering from an apparent stab wound to the abdomen. Nock was rushed to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries.

One of Nock’s cousins said Nock “was a very caring person and never did anything to hurt anyone.”

Police found Grey about 11 a.m. Thursday at a house on Newkirk Street in Philadelphia and arrested him on the spot, according to the prosecutor’s office. Bail information was not immediately available.
