ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- A Rochester man was arraigned Tuesday in a deadly stabbing June 20 on Rochester's southwest side.

Ronald Nelson is charged with first degree manslaughter and gang assault.

According to court paperwork, Nelson and two other people chased Travone Teasley down, and when he fell down on a Genesee Street sidewalk, Nelson kicked Teasley, while the other two people punched and stabbed Teasley.

Teasley was found unconscious and rushed to the hospital, where he later died. Teasley was 17.

Nelson is being held without bail due to a prior felony conviction on a federal gun charge.

The two other suspects are still at large.

Nelson is scheduled to be back in court Friday for a preliminary hearing. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
