STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A 15-year-old Connecticut boy is among two people charged in the fatal stabbing of a man after a fight that began allegedly over spilled coffee.

Police tell the Stamford Advocate that 52-year-old Antonio Muralles was leaving a Stamford restaurant with a cup of coffee March 11 when he bumped into the boy, spilling coffee on him.

James McLamb, of New Haven, and the boy have been charged with murder. A third person is being sought.

McLamb had been arrested on an unrelated weapons charge Saturday and was arraigned Monday. He’s held in lieu of $2 million bond.

McLamb didn’t enter a plea. His public defender says he hasn’t yet read McLamb’s arrest warrant.

The boy’s arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday. The Associated Press doesn’t typically identify juveniles accused of crimes.
