BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — A Brockton man is held without bail after pleading not guilty to stabbing another man last week during an argument over a woman.

Joao DeAndrade was arraigned on a murder charge Monday in Brockton District Court.

Prosecutors say the 50-year-old DeAndrade stabbed 49-year-old Jacinto Correia several times in the leg on Friday afternoon. Correia was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Family members tell The Enterprise of Brockton that the victim and suspect were friends who had spent much of the day together playing cards, but had an argument because they had both been seeing the same woman.

It was the first homicide in Brockton in 2014.

DeAndadre is to return to court Feb. 12.
