FORREST CITY Authorities say a 20-year-old Forrest City man is in jail over a fatal stabbing.
Forrest City police say they arrested Kendrix Black on a second-degree murder charge in the weekend stabbing death of 54-year-old John Bey.
The Times-Herald reported that officers responded early Sunday after an altercation at a Forrest City home.
Police say Bey collapsed in the home’s kitchen after he was stabbed once. Emergency crews took Bey to Forrest City Medical Center, where he died about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Bey’s body was sent to the State Crime Laboratory for an autopsy.
Authorities say Black was arrested later Sunday. He is being held without bail at the St. Francis County jail, and authorities did not know whether he had an attorney.
