Iowa man charged in connection with fatal stabbing

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) — A Cedar Rapids man has been charged with murder in connection with last week’s fatal stabbing.

Police say 39-year-old Stephen Jerred Johnson is being held in the Linn County Jail. Johnson is charged with fatally stabbing 34-year-old Clifton West last Tuesday in a Cedar Rapids alley. Cedar Rapids Police Sgt. Cristy Hamblin says the two men knew each other, but it wasn’t immediately clear what led to the stabbing.

Johnson is to make his initial court appearance Tuesday morning.
