Tucson police say they have arrested a man in a fatal stabbing from July 15, which left a blood trail for a caller to find on Tucson’s west side.

Charles Zanghi, 47, was arrested Wednesday without incident in the 1200 block of West Allegheny Street and faces a charge of second degree murder, a news release said.

The caller found the man injured shortly before 1:30 a.m. after following the blood trail near an apartment complex on West Speedway Boulevard and North 11th Avenue.

Despite life-saving efforts by emergency responders, the man died at the scene. Witnesses told police about a possible argument before the man was found.
