A Florida man has been arrested for the violent murder of another man who was stabbed at least 25 times last fall, police said Friday.

Shane McGarity, 46, is charged with one count of first-degree murder with a weapon and robbery with a deadly weapon, the Winter Park Police Department said in a news release.

In the late afternoon of Nov. 11, he called 911 to seek medical attention for himself, according to police records.

“I have no comment other than I was attacked, and I defended myself, and I am cut, bad,” he said during the 911 call, according to an excerpt from a application and affidavit for his arrest warrant. “I got badly cut with a knife. I need… I need paramedics. It’s bad; I almost cut my finger.
