Wichita police say a man was stabbed to death when two couples began arguing while preparing an Easter meal.

Police Captain Brent Allred said the couples lived together and were making a meal Sunday when 53-year-old Keith Kevell Thurman and 62-year-old Albert Thomas began arguing.  At some point, the men went outside and the fight turned physical.

Police say Thurman stabbed Thomas several times and he died outside the home.  Allred said it wasn’t clear what prompted the men’s arguments.

Officers found Thurman and his 57-year-old girlfriend at a hospital being treated for wounds.  Allred said the girlfriend was stabbed in the arm when she tried to break up the men’s argument.

The Wichita Eagle reports Thurman is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder.
