DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 74-year-old man has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a woman in Des Moines.

Officers were sent around 3:10 p.m. Wednesday to check a report of a fight at an apartment building office. They found the 54-year-old woman suffering from stab wounds. Police say she died later at a hospital. Her name won’t be released until relatives are notified about her death.

Police say 74-year-old Norman Wadsworth had blood on him and was found near the crime scene. He was interviewed, jailed and charged with first-degree murder. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney in the case.
