He has been identified by a family member as Orlando Maughn of Valery, in the same parish, after being pronounced dead at the scene by a medical doctor.
The second man who was involved in the stabbing incident was taken into custody last night, a neighbour told Nation Online, waiting at the scene until the lawmen arrived.
