BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man after he stabbed a victim and caused him serious injuries that later led to his death, early Saturday in Wofford Heights, according to the Kern County Sheriff's office.
KCSO and the CHP were called to a disturbance at a trailer park on the 6900 block of Wofford Boulevard where 61-year-old John Bartlett was found suffering from several stab wounds and trauma to his head after 65-year-old William Harry Minmaugh Jr. allegedly assaulted him.
Bartlett was taken to Kern Valley Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Investigations revealed the attack resulted from a previous argument the two men had had.
Minmaugh was then arrested at the scene and booked at the Kern County jail for suspicion of murder.
