DELAWARE COUNTY, Okla. – An Oklahoma man has died after he allegedly stabbed multiple people and then set himself on fire.

Around 1 p.m. Thursday, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office responded to a stabbing at 56351 E Highway in Monkey Island.

When officers arrived, they found three men injured; two were stabbed by a man who then sustained self-inflicted wounds.

All three were transported to various hospitals.

The victims have been identified as Alejandro Rovalcaba-Zambrano and Benjamin Chee.

They have since been released from the hospital.

The man accused of stabbing them, 28-year-old Joseph Honaker, reportedly set himself on fire after stabbing the two men.

Authorities say he died early Friday morning at the hospital as a result of his injuries.

OSBI officials say all three men worked for Land Care, a lawn service based in Tulsa.
