Accused murderer says dispute over relationship with woman
An apparent dispute between two men over a woman led to the stabbing death of a 22-year-old Rohnert Park man.
Rohnert Park resident Daniel James Dieters, 25, was arrested on suspicion of murder late Thursday night, March 20, in what police believe was a dispute over a woman and ended in the fatal stabbing of 22-year old Roy K. Kauwe.
Rohnert Park Public Safety Officers found Kauwe dead in his Edgewood Apartment on Laguna Drive shortly after 11 p.m. with multiple stab wounds to the neck area. Also, the pocketknife, which police believe to be the weapon used, was found near Kauwe’s body.
Police were dispatched after a 911 call from a man, claiming he had murdered his friend. Dieters, according to a RPDPS report, found standing in the parking lot of the apartment complex, according to Sgt. Jeff Justice.
Based on statements by Dieters, the stabbing was over a woman, who arrived before Dieters called the police. She was briefly interviewed then released.
