Police say the two men were arguing just before the stabbing. His landlord believes it may have something to do with a woman. We have confirmed that the victim was a registered sex offender.
It was just before six this morning when police were called to the area of North 59th and Madison. When they got there they say they found 30-year-old Benjamin Miller in the street. He'd been stabbed multiple times.
"I could see the EMT's doing frantic CPR on Ben in the driveway," said Miller's landlord, Marlene Sorenson. Miller later died at the hospital and 27-year-old Joshua Albright was arrested.
Police say this all started after the two men were arguing. Miller's landlord believes it has something to do with his girlfriend, who lived with him at the cottage.
"Her belongings are scattered in the front yard of the cottage. They don't look like they were neatly placed there. It looks like there was some emotion," said Sorenson.
Sorenson says she'd been renting to Miller and his girlfriend for just over a month. She had no idea that he'd been convicted of attempted first degree sexual assault in 2003. It was news she didn't see coming. "Normal, nice man who always when he saw me working the yard would ask if I needed his help," said Sorenson.
Joshua Albright is facing charges of second degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
