PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a man has been arrested in connection with the killing of a Phoenix musician on Christmas Day.

Phoenix police say 26-year-old Alexander James Chavez is accused of fatally stabbing Isaac Rivera.

The Arizona Republic reports that the 41-year-old Rivera was the front man of the punk rock band Section8 for more than 20 years.

Police say Chavez didn’t make any statements to detectives after his arrest Wednesday night and was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Police say Rivera was fatally stabbed after he rode a bicycle from his home to a convenience store and allegedly got into an altercation with Chavez.

They say Rivera was dropped off at a Phoenix hospital, where he died.
