ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina sheriff’s deputies say a fight between prison inmates on a basketball court escalated into a stabbing.

The Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office told local media outlets that deputies were sent on Tuesday to Pasquotank Correctional Institute, where investigators determined that 24-year-old Larry Eugene Allred stabbed 29-year-old Trenton Devay Hodge multiple times.

According to investigators, Allred told deputies that the fight started on the basketball court earlier that day. Allred said Hodge continued to antagonize him and the fight erupted.

Allred, who hasn’t been formally charged, is serving time for robbery with a dangerous weapon and was scheduled to be released in 2020. Hodge is scheduled for release in September after serving time for felony breaking and/or entering.

Officials said the case has been sent to the district attorney’s office.
