      Suspect arrested in man's chainsaw murder

      SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. -- Sheriff's deputies have arrested a man who allegedly used a chainsaw to kill another man in rural Skagit County.

      Undersheriff Tom Molitor said the 52-year-old victim was found dead Monday evening in his home north of Sedro Woolley in the 4800 block of Blank Road.

      Molitor said the 34-year-old suspect was arrested Tuesday morning and is believed to have acted alone.

      "It is believed that there had been a dispute between the suspect and victim," Molitor said in a news release.

      The suspect was a tenant at the property owned by the victim, but it was not clear exactly what prompted the attack.

      The name of the man who was killed has not been released.
