HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old man faces a murder charge in the apparent stabbing death of his father in their home in Henderson.
Henderson police say Frank H. Nichols III was arrested Tuesday after he was treated at a hospital for minor injuries received in a fight with his father.
The father's name wasn't immediately made public.
Police say officers went to the home near Stephanie Street and Patrick Lane and found the man dead after Nichols called 911 about 11 a.m. and said his father was inside.
Police say Nichols at first told detectives that an intruder attacked his father, but later admitted stabbing him during an argument.
Police spokesman Keith Paul says the homicide is the third in Henderson this year.
