THE BRONX - A man accused of stabbing a 70-year-old in the neck outside a homeless shelter in the Bronx is in custody, according to police.

Police say the 70-year-old man and a 50-year-old man, who are both residents at a homeless shelter for the mentally challenged,  got into an argument over money when the 50-year-old stabbed the 70-year-old in the neck.
