Lincoln Police say a 77 year old man has been arrested in the deadly stabbing of a relative at a family birthday party in Lincoln.

Police spokeswoman Katie Flood says officers were called to a southwest Lincoln home around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.  They found 46 year old Sujay Nooka with a stab wound to the chest.  Flood says he died at the hospital a little before 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Flood says 77 year old Bayapa Lingala, Nooka's father and law, was arrested at the scene and jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder.

She says officers also found a knife they think was used in the murder.
