Posted: Wednesday, March 16, 2011

KETCHIKAN — A Ketchikan teenager has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a man outside the man’s home.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports 18-year-old Devin Rossiter was arrested late Monday in the death of 45-year-old Nick Stachelrodt.

Rossiter was held without bail. The court clerk’s office said no paperwork had been filed by late Tuesday morning, and it wasn’t immediately known if Rossiter had an attorney.

Stachelrodt died Saturday night outside his parents’ home at the Vallenar View trailer park.

A neighbor and friend of Stachelrodt’s, Andy Shull, said he had been told Stachelrodt was stabbed while trying to prevent someone from breaking into a car owned by Stachelrodt’s parents. The car was parked next to the family’s trailer.
