Tulsa police are looking for a man they say stabbed a man to death at his north Tulsa home.

Eric Jason Spears faces first degree murder charges. He was arrested Monday night after the fight that left Devin Maggs wounded. Maggs died late Tuesday night. Spears was released before Maggs died, and now police are trying to find him again.

According to the police report a witness told police the suspect showed up at the home and began kicking the victim’s car windows and the victim went outside.  The witness says the men started shoving each other and the witness heard the victim yell, “Eric is trying to stab me!”

Police say the victim went back into the house and started vomiting blood and the stab wound in his torso was found and they called for help.  Police say the witness told them she’d been dating both the suspect and the victim and had been out with the suspect earlier in the day and the victim had come to drive her home.

Police say Spears said the stabbing was in self defense.

If the jails weren't full of petty crime offenders, then they might hold more people like this guy without bond.

It's going to be a whole new world now. That self defense line might go with some. You're going to have to prove it to the law.

1st aleman with comments like that who is the inbred...you! next they weren't fighting over her. devin (victim) had been called by her for a ride home after the dirtbag left her stranded at the bar. then after being arrested the police let a man (punk) out on bond that should have been held without bond due to the seriousness of the crime. i hope friends of the victim find him before the police and show him true justice. since apparently the tulsa police don't give a damn!
