TOMBSTONE, Ariz. Cochise County authorities say a suspect has been arrested in a fatal stabbing in the southern Arizona town of Tombstone.

County sheriff's officials say 21-year-old Antonio DeJesus Molina of Tombstone is being held on a $200,000 bond on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Authorities say there was an altercation at a Tombstone home about 9:30 p.m. Monday.

Deputies from the Tombstone Marshal's Office say 28-year-old Jonathan Gibson was found with multiple times in the torso and chest area. He later died at the scene.

Investigators say Gibson and Molina had some sort of altercation at the house and Molina allegedly stabbed the victim before fleeing the scene. He was arrested Tuesday morning and brought to the Marshal's Office for questioning.
