LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man accused of stabbing his two roommates, killing one of them, is indicted for murder. 

Police said 34-year-old Chadwick York killed Lindsey Royalty at a home on Neblett Avenue in Shively last week. 

He's also accused of stabbing her boyfriend with a large butcher knife. 

Investigators said York attacked them after the two confronted him about breaking into their car. He then fled from the scene but was caught by police shortly after at another home.

A grand jury has indicted him for murder, assault, burglary and criminal mischief.
