A suspect in a fatal St. Joseph stabbing has been released as the investigation continues.

No names have been released from the stabbing Wednesday evening. St. Joseph police say two men, both 39, got into a fight in the 2500 block of Mitchell Avenue. The confrontation continued to southern 26th Street.

Officers responded to disturbance call and, in route, were informed there had been a stabbing.

Officers found the victim suffering from stab wounds to the chest. He was taken to the hospital, but died of his wounds.

Officers took the other man into custody, but after no formal charges were filed within the state mandated 24-hour period, he had to be released. Prosecutors continue to review the case and charges could be filed later.
