The prosecutor says police found blood-stained sneakers inside the apartment where Rivera was arrested that matched bloody footprints in the home where Dominick Andujor was stabbed to death.

 

The boy’s 12-year-old sister had her throat slit while she slept in the same room. She remained hospitalized Monday. The hospital has declined to discuss her condition.

It wasn’t known if Rivera had an attorney.
