Berks County Man Fatally Stabbed In The Bahamas; 2 US Men Charged

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Authorities in the Bahamas have charged two U.S. men in the stabbing death of a Pennsylvania man on Bimini.

Assistant Police Commissioner Emrick Seymour says the men are facing charges of manslaughter in the death of 45-year-old Carl Yerger.

Seymour identified the suspects as 19-year-old Tyler Valles of Key Largo, Florida and 62-year-old Robert Schwartz of Gaylordsville, Connecticut. The men made an initial appearance before a magistrate Monday. The judge did not issue an immediate ruling on their request for bail.

Yerger was found stabbed to death Friday on the grounds of the Big Game Club and Resort & Marina.

Seymour says the suspects say they fought with Yerger after he allegedly tried to get on their boat.

Yerger was a father of two from Ruscombmanor Township, Pennsylvania.
