PHOENIX (AP) — Police have arrested two men and one woman in connection with a stabbing death at a north Phoenix park.
Sgt. Maggie Cox released the names Thursday of the victim and three suspects in Wednesday’s fatal stabbing.
Authorities say 24-year-old Maurice James and 18-year-old Eldon Sandoval have been booked on a second-degree murder charge.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Chantel Ben was booked on one count of hindering prosecution.
Cox says 23-year-old Isaac Clark was at the park just before 1 a.m. when he heard someone damaging his friend’s car.
Clark confronted the suspects and a physical altercation ensued.
Investigators say that’s when Clark was stabbed multiple times. He later died at a hospital.
It was not immediately known if any of the suspects had an attorney.
The investigation remains ongoing.
