LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) -- Police have arrested a 20-year-old man suspected in a stabbing that left one person dead and two others seriously injured at a party at a Longmont home.

The Longmont Times-Call reports Secundino "Dino" Martinez of Frederick was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. The names of the victims have not been released.

Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur says about 20 people between the ages of 16 and 21 attended a party that included the use of both marijuana and alcohol, and an argument escalated into a fight that spilled onto the front lawn.

Satur identified the man who died as a 19-year-old from Lafayette. An 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were hospitalized in serious condition.

Martinez is set to appear in court Monday.
