MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Police have charged a 21-year-old Marietta
man with killing an acquaintance with a knife and fork.

Richard Smith was arrested on Wednesday in the parking lot of an
apartment complex in College Park.

Marietta police spokesman Mark Bishop said Smith had been on the
run since police charged him with fatally stabbing 42-year-old
George Nelson on Nov. 15. Police said he was stabbed several times
in the face, head and neck with a knife and fork.

Bishop also said Smith struck Nelson in the head and stomped on his body.

Authorities say they believe the suspect and victim knew each other since there was no forced entry into the apartment.
