PORT LAVACA, Texas (AP) - A 75-year-old Texas man has been arrested and accused of using a large kitchen knife to stab to death another man.

The Victoria Advocate reports Sunday (https://bit.ly/1kDve73 ) that Manuel Fuentes Jr. is in the Calhoun County Jail on a $150,000 bond.

Port Lavaca Police Detective Colin Rangnow says Fuentes told authorities he had stabbed 53-year-old Juan Antonio Soto during a fight. Rangnow says Soto was stabbed in the center of his chest. He says alcohol appeared to be a factor in the fight.

Soto was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

It was unclear whether Fuentes had hired an attorney.
