LEBANON, Ind. Central Indiana police say a person of interest has been taken into custody after a man was fatally stabbed during a home invasion attack that left his wife seriously injured.

Lebanon police say 73-year-old Robert Max Foster died Sunday morning from stab wounds.

His 68-year-old wife, Sonia Foster, suffered serious wounds in the stabbing attack that came as the couple was sleeping, but she ran to a neighbor's home and summoned help.

Police say a 19-year-old man was taken into custody on Sunday in the city 20 miles (32 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis and was being held on a probation violation. He was taken in for questioning and police say he didn't immediately face charges in the attack.
