WALKER, Minn. (AP) — A northern Minnesota man is charged with fatally stabbing another man after an argument at a party last weekend.

Cass County prosecutors charged 23-year-old Frank Jesse LaRose of Longville with second-degree murder.

According to the complaint, LaRose became agitated during a party and started arguing with 31-year-old James Elmberg of Walker.

A witness says LaRose approached Elmberg as if to hug him but actually stabbed him in the chest. Another witness saw LaRose carrying two knives across the room.

Officers recovered two knives from the kitchen sink. One blade appeared to have blood on it.

Elmberg died at Crosby Hospital. LaRose caught a ride and was later arrested at a nearby home.

Bail for LaRose is set at $500,000. He does not have an attorney yet and remains in jail.
