VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A man accused of stabbing an acquaintance is facing a murder charge after the man died from his injuries.
The Columbian reports 24-year-old Charson Lotius appeared in Clark County Superior Court Monday on suspicion of murder and assault.
Vancouver police were called early Sunday to a convenience store for a disturbance with a weapon. A probable cause affidavit says upon arrival, they found 27-year-old Lukas Pison lying in the parking lot with a knife in his head.
