(Ogden-AP) -- An autopsy report shows an Ogden man who was killed in his apartment this week was stabbed at least 18 times.

Police say 43-year-old Mark Evangelista was found dead in his apartment Tuesday following an argument between the victim and the 25-year-old suspect.

Witnesses say they saw the suspect jump out of a ground-level window and flee, but police later caught him.

Police say the autopsy shows Evangelista died from "several types of trauma" including stab wounds to his torso, neck and head.

The suspect was booked into the Weber County Jail and faces criminal homicide charges.

Evangelista's estranged wife who lives in Rochester, Washington says he moved to Utah two months ago to care for his terminally ill mother who has since died.
