A 32-year-old man arrested barefoot and bloody after breaking into a neighbor's apartment in Northwest Baltimore is being charged with the killing of his 23-year-old girlfriend, police say.

William Mason is accused of shooting and stabbing Khaya Lambert early Wednesday morning inside the apartment they shared. Police first arrived on scene, in the 3900 block of Liberty Heights Ave., after a neighbor in the same building said he heard a crash and found Mason on his kitchen floor with a knife in hand.
