HOUSTON (AP) - Investigators have detained a construction laborer over the fatal stabbing of a co-worker he roomed with at a Houston-area motel.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office said the attack happened early Wednesday. Sgt. Ben Bell says the suspect told the crew foreman that the victim wouldn't be at work - because he was dead.
The foreman called 911. The suspect ran but was captured with the help of a law enforcement dog. Formal charges are pending against the suspect, who was treated for minor dog bites.
Investigators are trying to determine what prompted the deadly argument.
The name of the victim wasn't immediately released.
