HAMILTON, OH -

A 56-year-old man critically hurt in a stabbing earlier this week has died.

Clifford Wagers was pronounced dead Thursday at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

He was flown to the hospital Wednesday night shortly after police responded to the 200 block of Crowthers Drive in response to a 10:10 p.m. report of an altercation.

Police said they found Wagers suffering from several stab wounds.

Butler County sheriff's deputies arrested the suspect, Jonathon Day, 28, on Washington Boulevard.

Day and Wagers got into an argument, police wrote in an incident report, which lists the men living at the same address. 

While Wagers was sitting on the porch when Day came up and kicked him, according to the report.

Wagers ran off and jumped a fence to try to get away, but Day caught up with him in the side yard of another residence and cut him twice on his neck and once in the back of his head, police wrote in the report.

Day was originally being held on a felonious assault charge, but detectives charged him with murder following the death of Wagers. 

There was no immediate word Friday is that charge would be upgraded now that Wagers has died.
