MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — A 74-year-old man has been accused of fatally stabbing a man in the back during an argument.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that an arrest warrant for murder was served Saturday against Lonzie C. Johnson following the Oct. 5 stabbing of 66-year-old Gary Pratt.

Witnesses told investigators that Johnson was arguing with Pratt when Johnson pulled a knife and stabbed him before Pratt could get out of a chair.

It is unclear what the argument was about or whether Johnson has an attorney.
