There's been another fatal stabbing in the city of St. Louis -- just one day after a north St. Louis man was knifed to death.

Phung Huynh is the latest homicide victim in the city and police say he was killed by a relative, who has been taken into custody.

The stabbing, cops say, occurred after an argument related to an "ongoing feud" escalated.

The suspect, whom police have not yet named, is a 32-year-old male.

Police located Huynh on the 3400 block of Juniata Street in the Tower Grove East neighborhood in south city last night at around 10:30 p.m.

He was lying on his front porch suffering from puncture wounds to his abdomen and arm, cops say.
