RENO, Nev. (AP) — A man who called 911 from the Reno police department and was jailed for misusing the emergency system has been arrested for the stabbing death of another man at a downtown motel.

Reno police Wednesday said 45-year Tony Lee is charged with open murder in the death of 47-year-old Lorell Parnell. Parnell's body was found with multiple stab wounds Sunday in a room at the Flamingo Motel.

Officers say paperwork found in the room was linked to Lee, who showed up at the Reno Police Department with blood on his clothes March 9. Officers say Lee didn't provide any information about a crime or a victim. But he was jailed after calling 911 from the police station.

Investigators say subsequent testing of Lee's clothing revealed DNA from Parnell.
