LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Lawrence police say a 33-year-old man is jailed as a suspect in a stabbing death in Lawrence on Memorial Day.

Police on Wednesday identified the victim as 45-year-old Tracy Dean Lautenschlager of Lawrence. Police say he was found bleeding outside a McDonald’s in Lawrence Monday morning and died later at a hospital.

Lawrence police spokeswoman Kim Murphee says the suspect was arrested Wednesday after running from a home in Jefferson County and leading officers from several jurisdictions on a chase in a stolen vehicle. He eventually stopped outside Basehor and was arrested.

Lawrence media report the suspect was booked into the Douglas County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder and felony theft.
