MARION, Iowa — Police arrested the 32-year-old man suspected of killing a woman in a grocery store parking lot in eastern Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register.

Marion Police said Sunday that Nicholas Luerkens, of Cedar Rapids, was arrested on a warrant for first-degree murder after he was released from the hospital.

Luerkens was treated for self-inflicted stab wounds after Tuesday’s stabbing death of 29-year-old Lynnsey Donald of Marion.

Police have said Donald and Luerkens had previously lived together but Donald moved several months before her death.
