SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police say a verbal altercation after hours of drinking led to a fatal stabbing in Sioux Falls.

Thirty-eight-year-old Ronnie Baker was stabbed twice in the chest at a residence Sunday. A 40-year-old suspect was arrested several blocks away. He is expected in court later Monday.

Lt. Mike Colwill says witnesses at the home went to a neighbor’s house to call police following the stabbing.

Jim Hanscom tells KELO-TV he was checking for his Sunday paper when he saw police handcuffing a man in shorts. Hanscom says he didn’t recognize the man. He says he’s lived in the neighborhood for nearly 50 years and usually the biggest problem is speeding.
