GENEVA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ohio  — Geneva-on-the-Lake police have arrested a man accused of stabbing another man to death.

Police said Andre Sheffey, 30, allegedly got into a verbal argument with Christopher Nasca on Saturday.

According to officials, Sheffey stabbed Nasca in the chest.

Nasca died from those injuries.

Ashtabula County prosecutor Cecilia Cooper released this statement: “On behalf of my office and the law enforcement agencies involved in this investigation, I first and foremost want to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Christopher Nasca. We know there is nothing we can say to ease your pain, but we hope as the prosecution moves forward you at least feel some sense of closure. My office and I have been actively involved in this investigation since I received a call early Saturday morning from Chief Esser. I want to commend all of the law enforcement agencies involved in this investigation but particularly the Geneva on the Lake Police Department, investigators from BCI, and CEAAC for the countless hours they spent putting this case together over the weekend. This is a great example of how effectively our agencies work together."

A bond hearing for Sheffey has been set for later this week.
