SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Authorities in Puerto Rico have arrested a man suspected in the fatal stabbing of a tourist from Ohio.

Police said Saturday that they expected to soon charge 21-year-old Juan Carela Acevedo. Police originally had said he was 22.

He is suspected of breaking into the Arena y Mar apartments in the popular beach town of Rincon on Dec. 30.

Police said that 41-year-old Brett Walquist of Beavercreek, Ohio, was stabbed at least three times when he apparently walked in on the suspect in the kitchen.
