A 25 year old New Bedford man has been charged with murder in connection with a stabbing last week in the South End.

The District Attorney’s office says Marco Shane Ramos of Social Street was arrested Friday, and was arraigned Monday in New Bedford District Court on charges of murder, armed robbery and carrying a dangerous weapon.

Ramos entered not guilty pleas and was ordered held without bail.  His case was continued to September 23rd.

Ramos is charged with stabbing 22 year old Alex Silva of New Bedford last Thursday evening on West Rodney French Boulevard.  Police say Silva staggered into the South End Police Station, suffering from a stab wound to the abdomen.  He was transported to Rhode Island Hospital and died Saturday.

An autopsy is being conducted by the Rhode Island Medical Examiner.
