Los Angeles resident Michael Allen McGilvery, 44, surrendered to police on Friday. McGilvery is suspected of stabbing William Jennings, 35, multiple times during a dispute on the sidewalk at 3317 West Jefferson Boulevard.

McGilvery was charged with one count of murder and one count of robbery. He was held on $1 million. Police said people associated with McGilvery persuade him to turn himself in.
