MOUNT OLIVER (KDKA) -A man wanted in connection with a fatal stabbing in Mount Oliver on Sunday has been arrested.

According to police, Donald Finnigan, 36, was found using the busway and was taken into custody in West Mifflin shortly after noon.

Finnigan was wanted in connection with the death of 31-year-old Kevin Hill.

According to police, the stabbing happened around 5:30 a.m. at a residence in the 100-block of Amanda Avenue.

A friend of the victim said Finnigan and Hill had been drinking into the early morning hours on Sunday.

The friend, who did not want to be identified, fell asleep, but woke up to sounds of the men arguing. He then found Hill on the floor suffering from a stab wound to the neck.

“I was on the phone with paramedics or 911, and they had told me to put pressure on the wound and give him mouth to mouth and push on the chest and it did wake him up at one point,” the man said. “Just enough time for him to look me in my eyes and then he fell out.”

According to police, the suspect has a long criminal history which dates back to the late 1990s.

Criminal records show a past of theft and robbery and police said he served time in a state penitentiary for a previous stabbing.

Police said given Finnigan’s criminal history, they’re cautiously trying to apprehend him and are following all leads to his whereabouts.
