ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 38-year-old man has been charged with fatally stabbing his uncle at a home in northeast Anchorage.

KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/1pGeeCw) reports 38-year-old Ralph Nayokpuk (neye-AHK’-puhk) is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death Wednesday night of 51-year-old Ronald Mullins.

Police say the men were with other family members and began to argue as Nayokpuk was cutting garlic and onions with a butcher knife.

Police say the argument became intense and Mullins threatened to call police.

Investigators say Nayokpuk stabbed Mullins at least two or three times and afterward expressed remorse to an office.

Judge Gregory Motyka on Thursday set bail at $500,000.
