GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- A 23-year-old man is in jail after fatally stabbing his stepfather during an argument.
It happened shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday at a house in the 300 block of Congress Parkway in unincorporated Lawrenceville.
Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Edwin Ritter said the argument started over a puppy. The suspect, Diamond Mason, brought the puppy into the home about a week ago. Mason's stepfather, 51-year-old Joseph Kollie, didn't approve and asked the suspect to remove the puppy.
The pair's final argument about the puppy began late Tuesday night. At some point, Mason grabbed two large kitchen knives and stabbed Kollie several times, Ritter said.
Kollie was pronounced dead at the scene. Mason was charged with felony murder and aggravated assault, and is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Jail.
