Arthur Prince, 61, of Toms River, NJ, was pronounced dead at the hospital a little more than an hour after the altercation took place Saturday afternoon between him and Vicente Perez, of Macon, Georgia. The 57-year-old Perez (seen with the victims blood covering him in news photo to right) is charged with aggravated manslaughter, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

According to the medical examiner, Prince died as a result of a knife wound to his left cheek that severed his carotid artery (hockey-ers, think Clint Malarchuk or Richard Zednik) and caused him to bleed to death. Prince also had wounds to his mid-back, left lower abdomen and left upper abdomen.

According to Bluff Magazine, the argument began at a $1/$2 table after one of the two men returned from the ATM to find his seat was occupied by the other man.

In related news, the Taj is a crap-hole, Atlantic Shitty blows and a 57-year-old grown man stabbing a guy over a $1/2 seat is about as down low, pathetically disturbing as it gets.

And the Taj is a crap-hole, if we didn’t mention that already.
