Investigators say fight at apartment preceded fatal stabbing

GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) — A Gaffney man is dead after a dispute led to his fatal stabbing.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says 34-year-old Jason Edward Brewton was stabbed to death early Sunday.

Fowler says witnesses described Brewton coming to a local apartment complex and arguing on the front porch of one home for about a half an hour before the fight became physical.

Brewton says the victim was stabbed multiple times and died at the scene.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday. Gaffney police are investigating.
