Lincoln police have made an arrest in the fatal stabbing of a 58-year-old man at a Lincoln apartment.
Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong says police arrested 47-year-old Ivan Fourhorns and charged him with second degree murder and use of a deadly weapon in the death of Joseph Solomon, Jr.
“The investigation pretty well showed that there had been an argument between Mr. Solomon and Mr. Fourhorns that subsequently turned physical,” Peschong says. “And, Mr. Solomon wound up getting stabbed as a result.”
Investigators say alcohol played a role in the fatal stabbing. Both men are said to be transients and had been staying at the apartment.
