HOUSTON, Texas (CBS) — Police say one man was fatally stabbed by another in a dispute over food during dinner in a Houston apartment Friday night, according to CBS affiliate KHOU.

Reinaldo Cardoso Rivera, 38, has been charged in the death of 34-year-old Darwin Perez Gonzalez, in an argument over the last piece of chicken, reported the station.

The two men and three others were reportedly making dinner and drinking at an apartment complex on Oct. 30.

When Rivera later returned, he was reportedly taken into custody and charged with murder after allegedly admitting to police that he stabbed Gonzalez.
