Authorities in Northwest Wisconsin have arrested a man for allegedly stabbing his friend. Stephen Dahlstrom, 61, of Bogota, Columbia was found dead near a garage at a home near Luck. The only resident of the house,  62-year-old Wayne Roullard, was arrested on a possible charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

Sheriff Tim Moore said the two men were involved in a fight. Moore said the suspect gave several stories of what happened, but none made any sense all the while refusing to say what led to the fight. The Polk County Sheriff’s Department responded to the residence by a call made by a third party.

Dahlstrom suffered severe blunt force trauma and at least one stab wound. Roullard had a small puncture wound, and was taken to a hospital in Amery for treatment and toxicology tests.

An autopsy will be conducted today at the Midwest Medical Examiners office in Anoka, Minnesota.
