Stabbing victim was washing car when attacked


SIOUX CITY | Vincent Walker was washing his car Sunday when he was confronted by three people, one of whom stabbed him four times while another hit him with a baseball bat.

Daniel Levering, who police believe stabbed Walker, is now in custody in the Woodbury County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. District Associate Judge Todd Hensley on Thursday set Levering's bond at $1 million and set a preliminary hearing for Aug. 7 in Woodbury County District Court. If found guilty as charged, Levering would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.

Levering, 29, of Sioux City, was arrested without incident at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 1600 block of West 17th Street.

Sioux City police Det. Nick Thompson said officers continue to look for two unidentified male suspects who also were involved in the incident, which is still under investigation.

Police had been searching for Levering since Sunday after Walker, 36, of Winnebago, Nebraska, was assaulted.

According to court documents, Levering and two other men approached Walker as he was washing his car in front of 506 22nd St. After asking a bystander if she knew where Walker was, Levering saw him and then attacked him, stabbing him once in the chest and three times in the back, court documents said.

While Walker was being stabbed, a second person who is not identified in court documents was striking Walker with a baseball bat.

Walker was taken to Mercy Medical Center -- Sioux City, where he later died.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (712) 258-TIPS (8477).
