Unified Police officers early Monday morning arrested a 30-year-old Taylorsville man as a suspect in the fatal stabbing of his stepfather.
UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said that police received a 911 call about the stabbing at 3:04 a.m. The home, located near 2100 West Rebecca Ann Circle (6570 South), has a history of domestic disturbance calls involving the suspect and his 63-year-old stepfather, police said.
Hoyal said the victim, identified as John L. Palm, was conscious when police answered a 911 call, despite numerous stab wounds, and allegedly was able to identify his stepson, Doneral Dalton, as his attacker before being transported to the hospital. Palm later died at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
