Teen accused in Hot Springs stabbing death

Posted: Updated:

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Police in Hot Springs have arrested an 18-year-old male in the stabbing death of his mother's fiancé.

Authorities say Dillon Wayne Smith was arrested Tuesday afternoon on a second-degree murder charge.

The Sentinel-Record reports (http://is.gd/c5GhNu ) that 31-year-old Truman A. Bowers was pronounced dead at the scene. First responders found him on the front steps of Smith's mother's residence. An affidavit says Bowers was stabbed in the upper left chest.

Smith had been held on $10,000 bond in the Garland County Jail but he was not listed on the online jail roster Wednesday morning.

Smith has a May 14 court appearance set in Garland County District Court. It was unclear whether he has legal representation.

Police arrested Smith at the scene without incident. His mother called police after the stabbing.
