OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a 28-year-old man in the fatal stabbing of a retired Oshkosh police captain.

Ian Suzuki of Oshkosh was charged Thursday with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 67-year-old Jay Puestohl.

Puestohl was stabbed with a knife Sunday afternoon and died later at a hospital.

According to the complaint, a police officer arrived at the home and found Suzuki standing next to a couch where Puestohl was lying about a foot away.

Suzuki began saying, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" as other officers arrived.

Cash bond for Suzuki was set at $500,000.

Puestohl retired from the department in 2008 after 32 years of service.
