LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas have identified a 40-year-old man who was stabbed to death during a fight with his brother in a case that police say may be ruled self-defense.
The Clark County coroner said Wednesday that Justin Dale Boyer of St. John, North Dakota, died Monday at a hospital after being injured late Sunday. His death was ruled a homicide.
Police didn’t identify the brother. Officer Danny Cordero says he was questioned but not immediately arrested pending a review of the case by the Clark County district attorney.
Police say a roommate separated the men, but Boyer renewed the attack at a home several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
Neighbors summoned police about a bleeding man screaming outside the house, and police say both brothers were hospitalized.
