Man responsible for stabbing death turns himself in

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A man turned himself in to authorities this week in connection with a deadly fight in front of a Columbia bank earlier this month.

Timothy Branham, 34, is facing a murder charge after he stabbed a man in front of a Wells Fargo on 8800 Farrow Rd. Feb. 11, authorities said.

Branham told investigators that he and another man were fighting over drugs and money and it turned physical.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said that Branham initially told investigators that he was acting in self defense but after a thorough investigation it was discovered that Branham's statements were inconsistent with details of what actually happened.

The victim was transported to the hospital where he later died.
