“He didn’t want to share it. He wanted it for himself,” Daniel Trent said during a jailhouse interview with the Ocala Star-Banner.
Trent, 38, was arrested Monday and charged with second-degree murder in the death of Mark Durham, 56. The stabbing occurred at Trent’s home in Ocala, Florida, after the two had polished off a 24-pack of Natural Ice followed by 17 beers of an 18-pack they purchased together.
Trent says Durham grabbed that last beer first, which provoked an argument. Durham then grabbed a small knife from the kitchen and cut the side of Trent's index finger.
Trent eventually grabbed the knife from Durham and stabbed him twice -- once in the stomach and once in the chest.
“I felt this was self defense because he attacked me,” Trent told the paper.
