SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota (AP) – Sioux Falls police say the fatal stabbing of a Vermillion man was the result of a “botched drug deal.”

Twenty-five-year-old Christopher Woods, of Sioux Falls, is under arrest for the death of Zachary Adam Barta on Wednesday, this according to NBC News station KDLT in Sioux Falls. Woods was arrested on first-degree murder.

Police were called to a Sioux Falls hospital where Barta was being treated. They arrested Woods several hours later.

He’s being held without bond in the Minnehaha County Jail.
