Tucson police have made an arrest in a fatal stabbing last month near West Fort Lowell Road, officials say.
Niger Noriega, 22, was in the Pima County jail on unrelated charges when suspicion of second-degree murder was added to his charges in connection with the killing of Leroy Perez Calvillo, 51, Tucson police said in a news release Friday.
On June 16, Calvillo was found by police in the 200 block of West Delano Street with multiple tab wounds. He was taken to a hospital, but died a short time later.
Police are still asking that anyone with information about the case call 88-CRIME, the anonymous tipster line.
