A 40-year-old man was stabbed to death in Aurora Sunday night and now a 13-year-old boy is in custody and charged with the man's murder. Police are characterizing it as a "family dispute."

Aurora police say the stabbing happened around 9 p.m. in the 16000 block of East Easter Circle near South Chambers Way and South Parker Road. The area appears to be in the Acadia at Cornerstar Apartment complex.

Aurora police say when its officers arrived, they found the man unresponsive in an entryway of one of the apartment buildings with multiple stab wounds to the torso. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

He was later identified as Dominic Ramon Robinson.

CBS News Colorado reached out to the coroner's office but did not immediately hear back.

Police say the suspect remained on the scene, where he was arrested. Due to his age, police can't reveal his name or any other information.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
