TAMPA, Fla. – A dispute over a game of Yahtzee ended in a fatal stabbing, police said.
Mark Kelvin Allen, 49, was playing the dice game with 47-year-old Edith Elliot at her home in Tampa's Ybor City neighborhood on Saturday night, an arrest report said. They began to argue and Elliott went into a bedroom with her 49-year-old boyfriend.
Allen kicked in the door, scuffled with the boyfriend and then stabbed him twice, police said. The man, whose name is not being released until his relatives can be notified, later died at a hospital.
Allen was charged with second-degree murder and was being held without bond Monday, according to jail records. Jail records did not list a lawyer for him.
