LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man died Tuesday night after he was stabbed in the neck. Police arrested his housemate, who they say admitted to stabbing him.

Frederic Gilmore, 58, died at a Lufkin hospital. Rodney Evan Sheperd, 44, is charged with murder.

According to the police report, officers responded to a disturbance call at 11:01 p.m. at 908 Rowe Street. When they arrived, they found Gilmore, a resident at the house, laying in the front yard with a wound to his neck. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Also on scene was Sheperd, a resident at the house, who told officers he had stabbed Gilmore, according to the report. Officers recovered the knife out of his pocket and arrested Sheperd, according to the report.

Following interviews with detectives, Sheperd was booked into the Angelina County Jail on a charge of murder.

Police say the two began arguing over an unknown issue inside the house. The argument then turned into a physical fight outside.
