A 29- year- old San Fernando man has been stabbed to death. The incident occurred shortly before 11 o’clock this morning. Police say the victim, Brian Marrian, had been visiting his aunt at her Tarodale, Ste Madeline home when an altercation between Marrian and his 71 year old uncle led to a physical confrontation.
Police reports suggest that both men had been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.
It is also reported that Marrian was known to confront the pensioner whenever he visited. It is alleged that when he began verbally assaulting the accused this morning, the elderly man brandished a knife from the kitchen of the home and proceeded to stab Marrian in the chest. He died on the spot.
The daughter of the accused is said to be a police officer and the weapon has since been seized. Homicide detectives are investigating the murder.
