Once police arrived at the scene, they found the victim, whose name has not been released, suffering from a stab wound in his chest. Officers found a large knife on the ground nearby, WREG reported.
First responders tried to render aid to the victim, but he was pronounced dead shortly after, officials said.
Investigators spoke with the victim’s girlfriend, Jeosha Jones. She said her and the victim got into a fight over chores, and she picked up a large flat-screen TV and shoved it at him, WREG reported.
At that point, the victim reportedly fell against the refrigerator, which caused a bottle and a large knife to fall to the ground, police said.
