“A fatal stabbing incident that occurred in Independence Village last night has claimed the life of a minor. Independence police say that sometime around 8:15 last night they visited the polyclinic in the area and observed the body of a male person lying in the pan of a pickup truck apparently dead. Initial police investigation revealed that a 16 year old minor, his brother and a friend were sitting outside of their yard when 18 year old Cheston Arzu approached them wanting to borrow a horse that was grazing in front of their yard. Because Arzu was not given the permission to borrow the horse he walked behind the minor and placed him under a choke hold and inflicted the fatal stab wound to his chest. Arzu is now in police custody pending their investigation and is expected that he will be charged for murder.”
