BILLINGS — Billings police said two people have been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a man early Friday.

Lt. Brandon Wooley said in a press release that Dustin Rodarte, 37, and Charlotte Rodarte, 38, both of Billings, were arrested in Lockwood shortly after 2 a.m., less than an hour after officers were called to a residence on Terry Avenue and found the body of a 36-year-old man.

The two were arrested on probation violations and are being held at the Yellowstone County jail.

Wooley said the victim, whose name has not been released, died from an apparent stab wound.
