NEW ORLEANS - A 23-year-old Metairie man died from stab wounds after getting into an argument with a motorist in the French Quarter.

Police say Lekosky's wife confronted the man, the two began fighting, and when Lekosky tried to break up the struggle he was stabbed several times.

Police say the suspect fled the scene in his vehicle.
