Cherry Hill Stabbing

CHERRY HILL, N.J (CBS) – A 20-year-old Cherry Hill man is under arrest on charges of murdering another man over a drinking game.

The Camden County prosecutor’s office says the victim and the suspect were guests at a Sunday night house party on Kay Drive in Cherry Hill, where there was a lively game of beer pong going on.

The two men reportedly got into an argument over the game but let it go. Then, as they were leaving, at about 2 a.m., they went back at it. A fistfight broke out and this time, authorities say, the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim, who died a short time later at Cooper University Hospital.

Authorities have charged Naqueebullah Habibi with murder. They say the victim is William Walker, 21, a graduate of Camden Catholic High School and a volunteer fireman in Cherry Hill.
