SWEET HOME, Ore. (AP) -- The Linn County sheriff says his detectives have made an arrest in the case of a man who was killed and left in a pond on an 80-acre ranch south of Sweet Home.

Sheriff Bruce Riley said Friday night that 43-year-old Donald Matzke of Sweet Home has been arrested in the death of 56-year-old Tim Miller. Riley says the investigation indicates the two men had been drinking together at the Rockin Red Ranch on the night of May 1 when an argument broke out and Miller was stabbed.

Matzke was booked into the county jail for investigation of murder and robbery.

Miller's son reported him missing Tuesday. His body was found Wednesday.
