ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) -

An Orangeburg man has been charged with murder after a fight led to the stabbing death of another man.

Officers with the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety arrested 63-year-old George Miller on a charge of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Just after 2 a.m. Tuesday, police were called to a home on Green Street for a report of a fight and a stabbing. They found a man, 52-year-old Paul Robinson, lying on a bedroom floor with several stab wounds from a serrated kitchen knife. Robinson was taken to the hospital where he died.

According to the incident reports, as officers arrived at the home, a woman was shouting "He stabbed him." The woman told police Miller stabbed Robinson, who was her boyfriend, when he asked Miller to leave. She said she wrestled the knife from Miller and called police.

Miller was in the bedroom when officers arrived, and police say he struggled with them as they attempted to arrest him.

Robinson's girlfriend told police she had an agreement with Miller's cousin, their landlord, to care for Miller for $900 a month. She said the original agreement was to cook and clean for Miller, but later found out "he had mental issues and need to take medication."

Miller told investigators Robinson entered his room and pushed him into a table.
