Man accused in stabbing death of wife’s ex-boyfriend in Mesa
MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Mesa have arrested a man in connection with the fatal stabbing of his wife’s ex-boyfriend.
They say 29-year-old Derick Eugene Holman is jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder.
He’s being held on a $500,000 bond and it was unclear Monday if Holman has a lawyer yet.
Mesa police were called out around 3 a.m. Sunday after the body of 34-year-old Robert Henry Stevenson was found in the middle of a road.
Authorities say he was stabbed multiple times and was declared dead at the scene.
Police later located a crime scene at a nearby hotel where investigators say there was a confrontation between Holman and Stevenson.
Holman was arrested at his Phoenix home and police say he was in possession of the victim’s wallet and credit cards.
