Police are looking for a brother and sister after a 22-year-old

Jacksonville man stabbed Wednesday night died yesterday morning.

Erwin Earl Jackson died just after midnight at University

Medical Center after being stabbed in the stomach when an

argument with his neighbors erupted into a fight about 8:30 p.m.

in front of Jackson's house in the 1000 block of North Liberty

Street, said Sgt. Tom Hackney of the Jacksonville Sheriff's

Office.

Police have issued a warrant charging Jackson's neighbor,

Patrice L. Kelsey, with murder. Kelsey, 22, packed up her

1year-old baby and fled her home after the incident, Hackney

said.

Hackney said police also are looking for Kelsey's 17-year-old

brother, whom they are trying to identify, to question him about

the incident.

Hackney said Kelsey and her brother were arguing with Jackson

in his apartment. Police haven't determined the reason for the

dispute, but the three moved out in front of Jackson's home

where a fight broke out, Hackney said.
