Elk Grove Police have arrested a man suspected in the deadly stabbing of an elderly man.
Xihao Huang, 75, was found unresponsive in a field near Whitelock Parkway and Bellaterra Drive shortly before 1 p.m. July 24.
Police say officers had taken 21-year-old Kyle Smith into custody a few hours earlier on an unrelated parole violation charge, and investigators identified him early on as a person of interest in Huang’s stabbing.
Smith was ultimately arrested for the stabbing Friday.
Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to contact Elk Grove Police at (916) 478-8060.
