Johnson is accused of stabbing 45-year-old Eric Alan Flemming and 57-year-old Phillip William Hicks with kitchen knives at the Salvation Army’s Castleview Apartments. Police had mediated an argument among the three men just 10 minutes before the stabbings were reported.

An officer arrested Johnson as he tried to leave through a back stairwell. The two victims were pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Post Bulletin reports Johnson’s attorney, Catherine Hanson, said she has no comment.
