PHOENIX -- Authorities say a suspect now is in custody after a man was killed and another wounded in a stabbing at a Phoenix home.

Phoenix police say 34-year-old Johnny Lee House was taken into custody Friday afternoon.

He's being held on suspicion of second-degree murder and aggravated assault.

Officers were called out to a home about 3:30 a.m. Friday on a report of a stabbing incident.

They say House intermittently stays at the home and allegedly got into an altercation with a 66-year-old man inside the home.

That man was found later found dead from stab wounds. His name hasn't been released yet.

Police say a 33-year-old man outside the home was taken to a Phoenix hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It was unclear Friday night if House has a lawyer.
