SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Authorities have released the names of two men who were stabbed in their home, one fatally, and the man being held for investigation of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder.

Christopher L. Roe, 54, of Sandy was killed and his roommate, Rex Edwards, was wounded and was in serious condition at University Hospital.

Investigators said the assailant went into their home at the Hooser Mobile Home Park late Friday and stabbed the two men after an argument.

Zachary Hain, 27, who lives in an adjoining trailer park, was arrested and was being held in the Salt Lake County Jail.

Alan Roe described his brother Christopher as "essentially a harmless guy."

Police said a trail of blood stretched from the scene of the stabbing down the street to other homes, where Edwards had to get help.
