A $1 million bond has been set for an Iowa man charged in the Saturday stabbing death of another man, police say.

John Derrick Bean was arrested Sunday and charged with second degree murder in the stabbing of  James "Scott" Kerry Ezernack, police say.

The incident apparently happened after a scuffle at a residence in the 200 block of U.S. 90.

Ezernack, 30, was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.

Ezernack's mother, Elizabeth Kerry, said the suspect was at her home earlier Saturday with her son.

"There was no fight or anything (at that time)," Kerry said. "But later on this man came back and brought his wife into our front yard. Next thing I know, my son was stabbed by this man".

The investigation continues.
