The landlord of the building, 51-year-old Taha Mahran, was arrested shortly after and charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

The victim was rushed to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi where he was pronounced dead. When officers arrived, they found 44-year-old Zakir Khan with multiple stab wounds, according to the NYPD.

Cops say Khan was stabbed to death outside the house he rented from Mahran at 1001 Logan Avenue in Throggs Neck. Khan had three young children.

Mahran was also described as a good person by people who know him.
