ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Sheep Springs man is in custody in connection with a stabbing death on the Navajo Nation last weekend.

The FBI says 52-year-old Bufred Denetclaw was arrested Monday and is expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on Tuesday.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.

FBI special agents and tribal criminal Investigators responded Saturday morning to a report of a man found dead in Sheep Springs.

Preliminary autopsy results determined the man died of stab wounds.

FBI officials say the name of the dead man isn’t being released, in accordance with the U.S. Department of Justice victim privacy rules.
