Fight over drugs led to fatal stabbing

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A man is behind bars, after police say he admitted to stabbing a man to death during a fight over a drug deal.

Kenneth Flowers, 42, turned himself in to police a few hours after the incident and has been charged with murder, homicide detectives said.

Officers responding to a reported stabbing found Kenny Combs, 45, lying in the street in front of 1044 Marion Road just after 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

Combs was pronounced dead at Grant Medical Center at 2:43 a.m.

At approximately 8:00 a.m., Flowers surrendered himself to homicide detectives at police headquarters, police said.

Detectives say Flowers admitted that he stabbed Combs after Combs punched him in the face during an argument over the sale of crack cocaine.

Police say Flowers told them he ran away and disposed of the murder weapon.
