August 25, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A seven-month, multistate manhunt for a suspect charged with fatally stabbing a West Baltimore youth ended yesterday evening with his arrest by U.S. marshals in El Paso, Texas, a Baltimore police detective said.

Darryl Wilson, 21, of the 2200 block of W. Baltimore St. had been traced to North Carolina, Florida and Texas after being charged in a warrant with the stabbing Jan. 29 of Jonathan Chester, 17, of the 1600 block of Edmondson Ave., outside the home of the victim's aunt on Rayner Avenue, said Detective Anthony Lansey of the Warrant Apprehension Task Force.

Chester was stabbed in the face and chest during a dispute over $40 that was owed to one of Wilson's friends, Lansey said.

The suspect was being held in El Paso pending an extradition hearing.
