A 48-year-old man was identified today as the person who was stabbed to death just east of downtown Friday night.

Warrell K. Booher was found about 6:30 p.m. Friday in the hallway of his apartment building at East Central Towers at 915 E. Washington Blvd. His death is Allen County's fourth homicide this year, the Allen County Coroner's Office said.

Michael Foster, 52, was arrested Saturday night on a preliminary aggravated battery charge after he came to police headquarters to be interviewed about the stabbing, said Sofia Rosales-Scatena, Fort Wayne police public information officer.

Police said an argument escalated into a fight near an elevator when the stabbing occurred.

Foster was expected to appear in Allen Superior Court today.
