Gulf War vet dies of stab wounds in Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow_ A Gulf War veteran has died after being stabbed in the back during an argument with a neighbor.

Bryan Christianson died at St. Francis Hospital Friday after being stabbed last Monday night.

Kevin Robinson has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon but police say the charge likely will be amended today.

Police say the incident may be related to an incident at Broken Arrow's Rooster Days festival last Sunday when Robinson allegedly spit in the face of Christianson's wife.

Investigators say Christianson went to Robinson's house Monday and the two argued. After Robinson went inside his home Christianson began walking away but police Robinson came back out with a knife and during another argument Christianson was stabbed.
