PHOENIX (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a suspect who’s accused of fatally stabbing a Phoenix man more than 80 times.
They say 36-year-old Vamba Mamadee Donzo was taken into custody in Tucson.
He’s facing charges of second-degree homicide and theft plus aggravated assault on a police officer.
Donzo is accused of killing 47-year-old Christopher Charles Mihaylo.
Police say the victim and suspect shared a Phoenix apartment.
On Aug. 22, family members of Mihaylo called police to do a welfare check after they couldn’t reach him.
When police arrived at the apartment, they found Mihaylo on the floor in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds and other signs of trauma.
Police say they recovered DNA evidence from the apartment and a bloody knife.
It’s unclear if Donzo has a lawyer yet.
