Sujay’s father-in-law, 77-year-old Bayapa Lingala, was arrested for second-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony. Bayapa, who lived with the victim, was still in the home when officers arrived. He was taken into custody without incident. The knife believed to have been used was recovered.

Investigators have not yet determined what prompted the assault.
