GREEN BAY - A Green Bay man is dead after a stabbing on the city's west wide. Police say it happened at 947 Velp Avenue, they found the victim early Sunday morning.
Investigators found 51-year-old Kenneth Erving dead with multiple stab wounds around 12:30 am. Police have named 41-year-old Nawanna Polk a suspect in his death, though she has not been formally charged.

Police learned of the death when a man walked into the Department lobby shortly after midnight.
"He had talked to his sister who said that she had killed someone," Urban said.
Investigators then discovered that someone was Erving. Police rushed to Velp Avenue where they found him on the floor with wounds to his upper abdomen. Investigators believe the apartment is the suspect's, while Erving lived elsewhere.
Police found Polk less than a mile away on the 600 block of Chestnut. Officers say she was with acquaintances and was in a condition that made her difficult to speak with. They would not elaborate.
"She was taken into custody without incident, since that time we have been interviewing the suspect and several witnesses," Urban said.
Polk was convicted of disorderly conduct in January of this year. She is due back in court at the end of the month to face additional charges of disorderly conduct. Erving also has a record, but nothing recent.
His sudden death leaves those nearby with questions and concerns.

Now, with police continuing a homicide investigation, he's not
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning. Police expect Polk will be charged tomorrow. She is being held at the Brown County Jail, while her case is forwarded to the Brown County District Attorney.
