Anthony Eugene Summers, 53, was arrested for the "brutal" fatal stabbing of an acquaintance, Daniel Baynes, 58, inside a home that was being remodeled in Old Hickory, Tennessee, according to Metro Nashville police.
A construction contractor found Baynes dead inside the home around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 25, according to police.
Officers were told Baynes was assisting with the remodel and was being allowed to stay on the property.
