An argument between two fishermen in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk ended in tragedy when a man stabbed his friend after the pair failed to bring in a satisfying haul, police said Thursday.
The men, both drunk, began arguing while driving home from the disappointing fishing trip, police representative Olga Shamanskaya said, RIA-Novosti reported. After the victim blamed the man driving the car for the poor fishing location and arriving at the spot late, the driver swerved into a ditch and stabbed him with a knife in the chest four times. He then called the victim's relatives and the wounded man was taken to the hospital, but doctors were unable to save him.
A criminal case has been opened for "intentional infliction of serious bodily injury that resulted in the death of the victim," police said If charged and convicted, the man could face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.
