IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa City man has been charged with assault after police say he threatened to kill his neighbor over music.

KWWL-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1pkKGa1 ) 63-year-old Terrill Wiges was arrested Monday. Iowa City police charged him with assault while using a weapon and going armed with intent.

Witnesses say Wiges threatened to kill the neighbor because of music he was playing. They say Wiges held a knife to the victim’s throat and asked him if he was ready to die.

It’s unclear what type of music was playing or how loud it was.

Wiges is being held at the Johnson County jail. Online jail records didn’t indicate bond or an attorney.
