WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — West Valley City police say a 14-year-old juvenile has been arrested and booked into detention in connection to a fatal stabbing that left a 24-year-old man dead early Thursday.
Investigators believe an argument between the two individuals at Scottsdale Park is what lead to the incident.

When first responders arrived on scene, they determined the victim was deceased.
The identity of the victim has not been released.
