TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Tempe say a man has been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend at an apartment complex's clubhouse.
They say 23-year-old Mason Nez was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. It was unclear Monday if Nez has a lawyer yet.
Police say Nez was found early Sunday morning covered in blood and holding the victim, 23-year-old Tammy Begay.
They say Nez, Begay and another couple were hanging out in the clubhouse of their apartment complex Saturday night when Nez allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a pocket knife for an unknown reason.
The other couple ran from the clubhouse and called police.
Court records show that the incident was captured on surveillance camera.
