WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Waterbury police say they’ve made an arrest in the stabbing death of a man found inside a home on Capitol Avenue.

Police say 71-year-old George Marshall was found Friday morning with stab wounds to his upper body. WVIT-TV reports he was found sitting in a living room chair. Attempts to revive Marshall failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fox 61-TV reported that Theodore McMahon has been arrested on murder charges. Police say the 51-year-old had been arguing with Marshall, the owner of the home, about an eviction. It’s unclear whether McMahon has an attorney.

Neighbors describe the neighborhood as normally very quiet.
