BATON ROUGE, La. — A suspect wanted in connection with a stabbing death in Baton Rouge on Saturday and arrested in Crowley has been identified, according to the Advocate.

The Baton Rouge Police Department were called to an apartment on Jefferson Highway around 6 a.m. on Saturday, June 6 where they discovered 21-year-old Kinnedy Smith deceased from stab wounds.

According to the Advocate, Connor Regan called 911 the morning Smith died and directed police to the apartment, telling them he had stabbed his girlfriend and driven away, according to a police report.

He was arrested later Saturday in Crowley, showing injuries consistent with someone who had recently attacked another person with a knife, police told the newspaper.

Regan is being held at East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a second-degree murder accusation, in lieu of $200,000 bond.

Philip House, Regan's attorney, told the newspaper that it was too early for him to provide a comment.

A court date has not been set.
