LAS VEGAS—Las Vegas police say they arrested a 22-year-old man in the fatal stabbing of another man during an argument over a flat-screen television.

Records show Mathew Beard was being held Friday at the Clark County jail following his arrest late Thursday at an apartment complex south of the Las Vegas Strip.

The identity of the dead man was not immediately made public by the Clark County coroner.

Police say the victim was found at the bottom of a staircase after having been stabbed in the lower back during an argument about 7:30 p.m. at the Manor Suites extended-stay hotel.

He was pronounced dead a short time later at University Medical Center.
