WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - Wausau police have arrested a suspect after a man was found dead after a fight.

Officers were called to a Wausau apartment Saturday afternoon on a report that a man had stopped breathing after being in a fight Friday night. Emergency medical technicians were unable to revive the 43-year-old man. His name was not immediately released.

Detectives were able to identify a suspect and contact him. The 40-year-old man was brought to the police department for questioning and was arrested on suspicion of first-degree reckless homicide. He was taken to the Marathon County Jail.

Witnesses say the two men had been fighting in the apartment over a mutual girlfriend that both men wanted to date.

Authorities don’t know what caused the man’s death. An autopsy is scheduled Sunday.
