A former NFL football player was arrested in Ohio in connection to a fatal stabbing last month, authorities said.
Wilkerson, a running back with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1989 and a star leading rusher at Kent State before that, is accused of following the victim into a bathroom and then stabbing him multiple times, police said.
