A man was seriously wounded after he was stabbed in the stomach with a plastic snow shovel during a dispute over a chess game.
Ronald Swinton, 46, of Somers Street, is charged with stabbing his neighbor and one-time friend, Robert Spears, 39, of Wood Avenue, with the shovel when he came to his door Tuesday night, police said.
"These guys were fighting over a chess match that took place several weeks ago," said Detective Keith Bryant, police spokesman. "It's a bowl of beef stew."
Swinton contended that Spears owes him money for the game, Bryant said, while Spears claims he won fair and square.
