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.
