Alabama man charged in sword death in Mississippi

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Authorities have arrested an Alabama man accused of fatally stabbing another man with a replica Civil War sword following a fight at a mobile home in Mississippi.
           
Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal  that 47-year-old Stanley Pace, of Pale City, Alabama, chased 43-year-old Ronnie Max Duke, of Amory, down a street before stabbing him approximately 20 times with the sword late Friday night.
           
Cantrell said investigators arrested Pace on a murder charge Sunday after Duke was reported missing. Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley said Duke's body was recovered on Monday afternoon. 

Cantrell said Pace had hidden Duke's body beside the road before moving it to a garbage dump.
           
Pace was being held at the Monroe County jail pending his arraignment.
