ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Fairbanks police have arrested a suspect in a fatal stabbing.

Fairbanks police found Greg “Troy” Beasley at a homeless camp. He’s being held without bail. Online court records do not list his attorney.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Beasley in the death of 47-year-old Guy Yazzie. Beasley is charged with first-degree murder and evidence tampering.
