Steven Coulter murder: Man held over Newcastle stab death
A man has been arrested over the murder of a man found stabbed to death in a house in Newcastle.
The body of Steven Coulter, 59, was discovered at a property in Heaton Hall Road on the morning of 13 July.
He had suffered a single stab wound to the chest and may have been dead for "a number of days", police said.
A Northumbria force spokesman said a 45-year-old local man had been arrested on suspicion of murder and was being questioned.
Det Insp Dave English added: "Our investigation continues to progress and we have spoken to a number of people in relation to Steven's death.
"Steven was in his address for a number of days before he was found by emergency services so we need to hear from anyone who has seen him since last weekend."
