Metro Police arrested a suspect wanted in a Sept. 17 stabbing that left a 23-year-old man dead.
Metro's Criminal Apprehension Team detectives arrested 45-year-old James Epps on Friday, one day after police issued a news release identifying and describing him. Epps was charged with one count of murder with a deadly weapon.
A second man described as a suspect in the Thursday news release was contacted by Metro detectives and was excluded as a suspect.
Police said Epps and another man approached William Fetting at an apartment complex in the 300 block of Orland Street — near Jones Boulevard and U.S. 95 — shortly before 11 p.m. The men began to argue and fight, ultimately resulting in Fetting being stabbed and the two men fleeing the apartment complex.
Fetting was taken to University Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead, police said.
Epps is scheduled to go before a judge on Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. He is being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bail.
