Police said Decoster suffered multiple stab wounds and was apparently placed by Stiggle in a 1999 Toyota Rav 4 SUV, which then sped away. Neighbors near the apartment said Decoster, wrapped in a bloody blanket, was taken out a back door of the apartment and tossed in the car.

Car chase suspect held on $1m bail
A Connecticut man accused of crashing his sport utility vehicle into a Rhode Island State Police cruiser after a high-speed chase has been ordered held on $1 million bail. Eric Stiggle of New London faces charges including felony assault with a dangerous weapon after the chase Thursday. The chase began after State Police received a call about an SUV being driven erratically. At the same time, North Kingstown police noticed a Connecticut police advisory that a possibly armed man involved in a domestic dispute was seen driving an SUV in Rhode Island. Police say Stiggle, 39, wouldn’t pull over. He was arrested after his SUV crashed into a cruiser on Interstate 95 and flipped. No one was seriously hurt and no weapons were found. (AP)
