MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile Police say an argument between two men turned deadly just before midnight Monday. They say they were called to a home on Delmar Drive and found the victim, Randall Pugh, murdered in his front yard.
"There was just a bunch of cops and a lot of commotion down here, people screaming," Kelsey Fairbanks said.
Neighbors said they heard the chaotic scene down the street. Crime tape now dangles near the spot where Pugh took his last breath. Police said they responded to the victim's home after getting a call about an assault.
"When the officers arrived there, they found the victim outside with multiple stab wounds. Mobile-Fire responded and pronounced him dead on the scene," Officer Christopher Levy said.
Police said Nathaniel Aguillard used a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest a number of times. They also said the victim and suspect knew each other.
Right after the crime, police said the suspect left the scene, but came back a short while later.
"He did leave the scene and call 911 and waited for the officers to get there and set up the crime scene before he then showed up. He was detained at that time and they continued on the investigation and they were able to determine he was responsible for the death," Levy said.
This isn't the first time Aguillard found himself in cuffs. Back in November 2005, narcotics units searched his home on Georgia Avenue. They seized marijuana plants, equipment used to grow marijuana, and 200 ounces of packaged marijuana.
This time around, Aguillard is charged with murder. Police are still investigating the motive that sparked the crime. The 38-year-old suspect is being held on no bond.
