BLYTHEVILLE, AR - Blytheville Police are investigating the Friday night stabbing death of a man that police say was awaiting trial for the 2003 shooting death of a southeast Missouri man.

26-year-old Carlos Toliver of Blytheville was stabbed shortly before 10 p.m. Friday at a residence on Peabody Street in Blytheville.  When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim prone in the driveway, suffering from a stab wound to the chest.  He was later pronounced dead at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Blytheville.

Police have arrested 45-year-old Percy Richardson in connection with the stabbing.
