MURRAY — A man remained hospitalized in critical condition Sunday after being stabbed in the abdomen with a knife during an argument with a neighbor at the Regal Street apartment complex shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday.

Murray Police Sgt. Jake Huggard said Fidencio Ulibarri was booked into jail early Sunday in connection with the stabbing. Huggard said Ulibarri initially fled the scene but was apprehended after returning to the apartment where he had been staying.

The argument "may have involved the victim's girlfriend," Huggard said. The victim, whose name was not immediately released, was unconscious after surgery and has been unable to assist authorities, the sergeant said.
