Police have charged 56-year-old Napoleon Harvey with criminal homicide in the death of Stephanie Alexander.

According to police, Harvey admitted Wednesday night during a jail interview with detectives to killing Alexander after an argument in his car on the night of Sept. 4.

The state issued a parole violation warrant against Harvey on the afternoon of Sept. 5, the same day Alexander's body was found in a vacant lot in Salemtown. On Sept. 6, he was arrested on that parole violation warrant, stemming from a July DUI Conviction.

Harvey was sentenced to 50 years in prison for robbery in 1983. He was paroled in 2006.
