A fight between Mid-South friends turns deadly

(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South man is behind bars tonight after an argument between friends turned deadly.

According to an affidavit, two friend Mark Brown and Derek Beard began fighting when Brown took a beer bottle from Beard's hand. After taking the bottle, Brown threw Beard over the porch rail onto the ground, stabbed, and killed him.

The stabbing happened around 11 p.m. Saturday night on the 1700 block of Alcy Road.

A mutual friend Ceffers Fullilove does not understand what happened.

"It hurts me though, I ain't gonna lie...for both of my friends to do something like this. You never know what's going on in somebody else's mind" stated Fullilove.

Mark Brown faces a judge Monday morning. Brown is in jail under a $200,000 bond.
