CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - Police say a 43-year-old Corinth man was stabbed to death Wednesday night while investigating a possible car burglary outside his home.
Investigators tell WCBI-TV (http://bit.ly/1pD7R3d ) that 59-year-old Jerry Miller has been arrested in the case.
Officers say Greg Scott heard noises outside his Nelson Street home and found Miller in the street. Windows in several vehicles had been damaged before the confrontation, police say.
When police arrived, they found Scott screaming in the kitchen of the home, where he had fled after being stabbed in the chest.
Investigators say he died a short time later at a local hospital.
Police arrested Miller at his home, where they say they found the butcher knife believed used in the stabbing.
It was not immediately clear whether the suspect has an attorney.
