LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -

A suspect has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of a man in Letohatchee Tuesday night.

Randall Downs, 49, of Letohatchee, was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with murder.

Downs is accused of stabbing and killing Geradzo Medrano Biera just after 6 p.m. at a house at 6275 Highway 97 South, which is not far from the Letohatchee post office, according to Lowndes County Sheriff John Williams.

Biera was airlifted to Baptist South Hospital in Montgomery but later died of his injuries.

Sheriff Williams said Biera did not live at the house where the stabbing happened and it remains unclear if the victim and suspect knew each other.

The sheriff would not discuss any type of motive in the case.

Downs is being held in the Lowndes County Jail on $100,000 bond.
