Darwin David Law

The man accused in a fight that left another man dead overnight is being held on $150,000 bond.

Topeka Police were called just after midnight Friday morning to a stabbing at 513 SW Taylor. Officers found 45-year-old Jon A. Chiselom dead, slumped on the stairs leading to an upstairs apartment.

Several other people were on the stairs as well, including 42-year old Darwin David Law. Officers arrested him on a charge of second degree murder.

In an initial bond appearance Friday, the public defender's office was appointed to represent Law. He'll be back in court next month for a docket hearing.

Officers say Law and Chiselom knew each other and were arguing before the stabbing.

Anyone with additional information that could help police in their investigation should call Crimestoppers at 785-234-0007 or text "CRIMES" then type "TIP 128" and add your message.
