LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Police have arrested a 25-year-old man in the death of a Longview man.

KATU-TV reports on Sunday night, police went to a residence after a woman reported that she had found her 73-year-old landlord, Arthur Mahlum, dead.

Longview police say officers in Barstow, California arrested person of interest David J.E. Daniel Jr. on a warrant in that state Thursday.

Daniel faces a charge of first-degree murder.

Police say Mahlum’s vehicle was found in Barstow.

It wasn’t known if Daniel has a lawyer.
