A Vermont man has been accused of fatally stabbing a man at a mobile home park.

Police said they found 37-year-old Michael Johnson of Bellows Falls lying on the floor at one of the residences at the Shady Pine Mobile Home Park in Westminster early Saturday. Johnson was unresponsive and police saw he was suffering from a chest wound. They rendered first aid and he was later pronounced dead.

Police later arrested 38-year-old Lonnie Place of Westminster on a charge of manslaughter; he was jailed without bail.

Place was scheduled to be arraigned Monday. The Associated Press sought comment on the charges from Place, but could not immediately verify whether he had a listed phone number or an attorney.
