Three Arrested in Deadly Stabbing

Posted: Updated:

A Lexington man is dead following a stabbing early Saturday morning.

Lexington Police said they were called to 312 High Street around 2:19 a.m.

Douglas Matzar, 21, was found stabbed. He was transported to Lexington Regional Health Center where he was pronounced dead.

A neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said she heard police.

"In the morning I woke up by sirens, red lights like an ambulance taking off going," she said. "Then this morning, maybe roughly 7:00 a.m., we saw a bunch of police officers over there walking around the yard."

Authorities arrested Navor Millan, 21, of Lexington for second degree murder and use of weapon to commit a felony.

Lexington residents 26-year-old David Martinez and 20-year-old Gregory Franco were also arrested for third degree assault.

The Lexington Police Department continues to investigate. The Dawson County Sheriff's Office and Lexington Fire and Rescue are assisting.

For the victim and all three suspects, this is the latest in a string of violent crimes.

Matzar was charged with trespassing and assault earlier this year, according to court records.

Millan was charged with assault around Halloween for a fight at Plum Creek Park in Lexington. Records show he entered a guilty plea.

Martinez was charged with terroristic threats earlier this month. Court records show he pointed a BB gun at another man and poured lighter fluid on his pickup.

Franco was charged with assault and abuse of a vulnerable adult for an incident involving a paralyzed man.
