OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Police have made an arrest in the deadly stabbing that took place Monday afternoon at the Owings Mills Laundromat.

Julian Funderburk, 29, faces first degree murder charges for the death of 39-year-old Jerry Lewis.

Witnesses told WMAR-2 News that Lewis was known to volunteer at the laundromat, which is located on Reisterstown Road just north of Owings Mills Boulevard.

Prior to the fatal encounter, Lewis was reportedly helping a female customer.

At some point, Funderburk began bothering the woman.

That's when witnesses say Lewis stepped in to defend her, telling Funderburk to leave.

According to charging documents Funderburk said "I'm going to get my knife, and I'm going to cut your head off."

He soon came back with two knives and attacked Lewis, stabbing him to death.

Police spotted Funderburk walking back home with his hands covered in blood.

With him was a duffel bag, that reportedly contained a pair of bloody kitchen knives and a toilet bowl cleaner handle with a razor blade attached.

The brutal assault was also captured on surveillance, court documents say.

During an interview with detectives Funderburk admitted to the stabbing, saying he felt disrespected by Lewis.

He's currently being held without bail.
