ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) - An argument at a New Year's Eve party in
Acworth led to the fatal stabbing of a man who was visiting from Kenya.
Acworth Police Major Wayne Dennard declined to identify the victim because his kin had not been notified yet.
He said the victim was stabbed just before 5 a.m. Wednesday and died after emergency surgery at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital.
Witnesses told police the man got into a quarrel that turned violent. Police said a 35-year-old man was taken into custody while police continue their investigation.
