HOUSTON (RNN) - A fight between roommates over fried chicken turned deadly.

A Cuban male was found dead outside of a west Houston, TX apartment Friday night.

Witnesses saw the roommates fighting outside, and one roommate stabbed the other with a steak knife, according to the Chron.

The argument was over who would get to eat the last piece of fried chicken, a drumstick.

“There was a single drumstick in the pan,” said Houston Police Department Homicide Detective Fil Waters. “You can’t script this stuff. It’s someone getting killed over a piece of chicken. Pretty tragic.”

A suspect in the stabbing death, Reinaldo Cardoso River, 38, was arrested and charged in the stabbing death, Houston Police Department report. The knife was recovered at the scene.

Rivera, who officers said admitted to the stabbing, was injured in the incident.
