PORTLAND — Portland police today released the name of the man who was stabbed to death last week inside a Grant Street apartment.

Lt. Gary Rogers said 58-year-old Richard Meyers of Portland was found dead inside an apartment at 55 Grant St. late Thursday night.

The state Medical Examiner’s Office, which conducted an autopsy on Sunday, ruled that Meyers’ death was caused by stab wounds.

Shawn Garland, 25, of 55 Grant St. has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the stabbing.

An acquaintance of Garland said he is known as “Schizo Shawn” and owns a samurai sword.

Portland Police Chief James Craig told reporters last week that the victim was stabbed with a knife. Craig also said the men knew each other.
