PORT LAVACA, Texas - PORT LAVACA, Texas (AP) - A 75-year-old Texas man has been arrested and accused of using a large kitchen knife to stab another man to death.
The Victoria Advocate reports Sunday that Manuel Fuentes Jr. is in the Calhoun County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
Port Lavaca Police Detective Colin Rangnow says Fuentes told authorities he had stabbed 53-year-old Juan Antonio Soto during a fight. Rangnow says Soto was stabbed in the center of his chest. He says alcohol appeared to be a factor in the fight.
