Police have arrested a man they say stabbed another man to death inside a downtown Reno motel.

Police have charged 44-year-old Tony Lee with open murder.

Investigators say back on March 9th he showed up at a police station and called 911 while covered in blood. At the time officers arrested him for misuse of 911 but couldn't find out who the blood belonged to.

Then but with the help of DNA testing, this week they discovered it belonged to 47-year-old Lorell Parnell.

Parnell's body was found badly decomposed in a room inside the Flamingo Motel on Center Street Sunday morning. Police say they found documents belonging to Lee in the room as well.

If you have any information on the murder that can help investigators call Secret Witness at 322-4900 or text your tip to 847411 or go online to
