    MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) - Muscatine police have arrested a man in connection with a stabbing death.

    The Muscatine Journal reports police were called to a report of a stabbing just after 7 p.m. Sunday.

    Officers discovered 45-year-old Timothy Dean Lane had been injured. Efforts to resuscitate Lane were unsuccessful. He was later pronounced dead at Trinity Hospital.

    On Tuesday afternoon, officers charged 30-year-old Cody Ryan Curtis with second-degree murder. Curtis was Lane’s stepson.

    Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren says Lane died of a knife wound to the chest. He had been stabbed about five times.

    Curtis was held in the Muscatine County Jail without bond. His initial court appearance is set for Wednesday morning.
