NEW YORK - Police say a second victim has died after a stabbing rampage by a naked man armed with a 10-inch kitchen knife at his New York City apartment building.

Police say 23-year-old Christian Falero knocked on several neighbors' doors Tuesday in his Washington Heights building and stabbed those who answered.

Eighty-one-year-old Ignacio Reyes-Collazo was killed Tuesday. The death of 60-year-old Yigao (EE'-gow) Chen was announced Wednesday.

Two other women, ages 75 and 85, were also stabbed, and a younger home health aide was punched.

Residents said afterward that the suspect was seen running down the street yelling that it was the end of the world. Police say he underwent a psychiatric evaluation at Harlem Hospital and was charged with second-degree murder and robbery.

No attorney information was immediately available for Falero.
