WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Pittsburg man has been charged with fatally stabbing his sister’s ex-boyfriend during a Wichita fight.

Morgan Prager, 24, made his first appearance Wednesday in Sedgwick County District Court on charges of second degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, KFDI-FM reports. He is jailed on $250,000 bond.

Wichita police say officers responded Saturday to an assault call and found 19-year-old Vincent Venturella suffering from a severe neck laceration. Police say the men had fought about Prager’s sister. Venturella died Monday night.

Prager was arrested in Pittsburg. Kansas Department of Corrections records show that he had been discharged in December from community corrections after previous convictions for theft and criminal possession of a firearm in Wyandotte County.
