A Salt Lake man was stabbed to death and a Stansbury Park, Tooele County, resident died from gunshot wounds suffered in separate weekend incidents, authorities said Saturday.
Tniela Patetefa Fangupo, 20, was booked into Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of criminal homicide following the early Saturday stabbing of Mana Hautau at a west-side party.Meanwhile, a 48-year-old woman was being held in Tooele County Jail for investigation of criminal homicide in connection with the Friday night shooting death of Chris J. Strieby, a deputy sheriff said.
In the Salt Lake incident, Hautau, 28, died at 7:05 a.m. Saturday in LDS Hospital from multiple stab wounds to the chest, a hospital official said.
The two Salt Lake men were at an all-night party in a clubhouse at the rear of a home at 1291 Iola Ave. (340 South) when a disagreement erupted into a fight, said police Lt. Tom Brown.
About dawn, one man left the party, returned later, and the stabbing occurred, Brown said.
Police arrived at the scene shortly before 6 a.m., Brown said, and witnesses described the knife-wielding man who had already left.
An officer spotted a man in a car. Following a foot chase, officers apprehended a man several blocks from the stabbing scene at 760 S. Jeremy St. (850 West), Brown said.
Neighbors of Strieby, 41, called the Tooele County sheriff's office after hearing shots fired about 7:30 p.m. Friday at the family's home, No. 4 Mill Pond, Stansbury Park, authorities said. The victim had been shot at close range.
