(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington man was arrested on a murder charge in connection to a stabbing Friday that killed a 64-year-old David "Charlie" Pierce.

At 4 p.m. Monday, Bloomington police arrested 51-year-old Jeffrey Hahn at his home. He is being held on preliminary charges of murder and theft.

Bloomington Police Captain Steven Kellams says Hahn was transported to the Bloomington Police Department where he was interviewed by detectives. During the interview, Hahn admitted that he had been at Peirce's apartment the evening of Thursday, January 25th.

"Hahn stated that he and Pierce had been smoking synthetic marijuana, or "spice," throughout the evening and had gotten into a physical altercation at one point," Capt. Kellams wrote in a press release. "Hahn eventually left the
residence, but returned a short time later where he admitted to stabbing Pierce multiple times. He also admitted to detectives that he stole Pierce's cell phone prior to leaving the residence for the final time."

Pierce was found dead inside his apartment in 500 block of West Sixth Street just after 12:30 p.m. Friday. Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields says Pierce suffered two stab wounds to his neck.

Hahn is currently being held at the Monroe County Jail without bond.

Bloomington Police Department Capt. Steve Kellams declined to release many details about the case, saying the murder remains under investigation.
