SALISBURY, Md. — Maryland State Police have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection to a deadly stabbing outside a Salisbury apartment complex Sunday night.

Police say Mishler and two other males approached Abbey's girlfriend, which led to some sort of altercation that left Abbey stabbed. He later died at an area hospital.

Mishler was picked up and arrested by police Monday evening in the 1000 block of Schumaker Woods Drive.

It's unclear if police located the other two males with Mishler at the time of the incident, and if they are considered suspects.
