The suspect was arrested Friday morning near Wanblee by Oglala Sioux police and faces charges of first-degree murder.

Someone called 911 at 4:50 a.m. Thursday to report a man was lying in the grass and officers began life-saving measures once they noticed he had been stabbed in the chest.
Baumgarten was taken to the hospital where he died.
