MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man has been arrested on a first-degree murder charge after a fatal stabbing at a Manchester home over the weekend.
The Coffee County Sheriff’s Office said Jesus Perez-Beltran and Jose Vasquez were both at a residence on Bryan Boulevard Sunday.
At some point, deputies said Perez-Beltran stabbed Vasquez twice in the chest with a switchblade.
Vasquez was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to investigators.
A witness told detectives that Perez-Beltran ran through the residence after the stabbing, then jumped through a front window and took off.
He was later located and treated for cuts, the sheriff’s office said.
Perez-Beltran was arrested on a charge of first-degree murder. He was booked into the Coffee County jail, where he was held on a one-million dollar bond.
A booking photo for Perez-Beltran was not immediately released by law enforcement.
