NEW YORK - Supporters of a Harlem, New York bodega worker, who is facing a murder charge relating to an on-the-job stabbing of a robbery assailant, are hoping today that the local District Attorney will drop the charges after meeting with him.

Fernando Mateo, president of United Bodegas of America, said "we're hopeful that after the DA finishes his investigation he will exonerate Jose Alba." Alba is the 51-year-old bodega worker who is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of an irate customer who attacked him in a dispute over a bag of chips.

Alba's supporters insist the fatal encounter, viewed on security footage, was a clear case of self-defense after the customer Austin Simon charged behind the counter to confront the store worker.
