Lukouxs Brown

The victim of a fatal stabbing at the Prestage Foods plant in Eagle Grove Tuesday has been identified as 50-year-old Wayne Smith of Fort Dodge.

Deputies found Smith stabbed to death inside the lockerroom of the pork processing plant. Deputies arrested 26-year-old Lukouxs Brown of Fort Dodge and charged him with first-degree murder in Smith’s death.

Investigators say the two men knew each other — but they are still trying to determine the exact nature of their relationship. Brown is being held in the Wright County Jail with a court appearance scheduled for today.
