TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A man wanted in connection with a deadly knife attack southwest of Tucson earlier this week is in custody.

Pima County Sheriff’s officials say 32-year-old James Murray Reaves called 911 early Wednesday to turn himself in.

He was arrested near Whetstone and is being held in the Cochise County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and first-degree burglary.

Sheriff’s officials say a 38-year-old man suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at a hospital early Monday. His name hasn’t been released.

Authorities say a 34-year-old woman who is Reaves‘ ex-girlfriend suffered minor wounds in the attack.

Sheriff’s officials say Reaves allegedly went to a home in the early morning hours and got into a fight with the male victim, then fled the scene.
