A 75-year-old man was charged early Monday with the weekend murder of his long-time companion.

Seabon Gibson was brought in for questioning after the body of a 58-year-old woman was found Sunday in a vacant lot in the 1400 block of North Robertson Street.

The victim had been stabbed several times and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Gibson allegedly confessed and was charged with second-degree murder early Monday morning.

Police said he had been previously convicted of attempted second-degree murder and simple escape.
