Deadly stabbing in Wichita apartment sparked by dispute over loud music being played

Wichita police say a deadly stabbing at an apartment complex apparently was sparked by a dispute over loud music.

Captain Brent Allred said officers responded to a call early Sunday and found 45-year-old Joseph Heiman in his apartment suffering from several stab wounds.  He died later at a hospital.

KAKE-TV reports Allred said the suspect, Darnell Jackson, called 911 to report the stabbing and was arrested at the apartment complex.  He was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and remains jailed on $90,000 bond.

Allred said investigators found that Jackson and Heiman had been arguing for several weeks over loud music played by Heiman.
