Ivan Fourhorns

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Lincoln police say they have arrested a 47-year-old man in the stabbing death of another man in an apartment near the city's downtown.

Police charged Ivan Fourhorns with second-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

He's suspected in the killing of 58-year-old Joseph Solomon Jr. in an apartment just blocks from the state Capitol.

Police say both men were transients and were drinking together in the apartment when they began to argue.

It was the third homicide this year in Lincoln. All of the killings have occurred in the past two months.
