KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Officials say a 40-year-old man who was stabbed in Klamath Falls after a noise complaint at an apartment complex has died from his injuries.

The Herald and News reports (http://bit.ly/2aBNO2K ) Jesse Richard Toney died early Wednesday. He had been transported to the hospital in critical condition Saturday after suffering a stab wound to the chest.

His alleged attacker, 31-year-old Paul Christian Wuerz, turned himself in to police and appeared in court Monday on charges of attempted murder. He could face new charges now that Toney has died.

Police say Wuerz had complained to Toney and another man, who had been arguing on a sidewalk near the apartment complex, that they were being too loud. Police say Wuerz came out of his apartment and then stabbed Toney before fleeing the scene.
