RENO, Nev. (AP) - A man who called 911 from the Reno Police Department and was jailed for misusing the emergency system has been arrested in the stabbing death of another man at a downtown motel.

Reno police said Wednesday that 45-year-old Tony Lee is charged with open murder in the death of 47-year-old Lorell Parnell. Parnell’s body was found with multiple stab wounds Sunday in a room at the Flamingo Motel.

Officers say paperwork found in the room was linked to Lee, who showed up at the Reno Police Department on March 9 with blood on his clothes. Officers say Lee didn’t provide any information about a crime or a victim, but he was jailed after calling 911 from the police station.

Investigators say subsequent testing of Lee’s clothing revealed DNA from Parnell.
