Manhattan A 17-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder in the weekend stabbing death of a Fort Riley soldier.
Skylor Cole Alexander is accused of killing Pfc. Randall S. Lindsey, 21, of Fort Riley, B Company, 79th Engineering Battalion on Saturday.
Because he is a juvenile, Alexander is being held at the North Central Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Facility in Junction City without bond until his first court appearance, which is scheduled for today.
According to police reports, a Riley County police officer on patrol in Aggieville district was alerted that a person had been stabbed. The officer then found Lindsey, who had suffered a knife wound to the abdomen.
Police believe the stabbing happened after an argument between the two parties. Riley County Emergency Medical Services responded and took Lindsey to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
