The last hour of Philip Bushong's life is captured in black and white images by a store's surveillance camera, from his warm embrace of friends to falling face-first to the pavement with a hole in his heart.
A Marine charged with fatally stabbing a fellow Marine during a late-night brawl had a history of drug use and belligerent behavior and had been heard by witnesses about an hour before the crime saying he was looking to stab someone, prosecutors said Monday.
In court documents, Mr. Poth explained his actions to police as self-defense, saying Bushong punched him in the face and head.
Mr. Benowitz did not comment on a report from police, who said Mr. Poth uttered a homophobic slur during the exchange.
