Fight over marijuana leads to fatal stabbing

JACKSON, S.C. (AP) - Investigators say an argument over money that one man owed another man for a bag of marijuana led to a fatal stabbing in Aiken County.

The coroner's office said 24-year-old Brenden Tucker died Sunday night a short time after he was stabbed.

Jackson Police say Tucker wanted 18-year-old Skyler Wright to pay him for marijuana when they started arguing and the fight became violent.

Investigators say officers found Wright hiding in a car a few blocks away after the stabbing with a knife that had at least a 2-inch blade.

Police say several people saw the stabbing.

Wright has been charged with murder. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
