MARIETTA: Authorities charge man in fatal shooting

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Cobb County have arrested a man they say shot another man to death in Marietta.

Cobb County police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce says officers were sent to a bar called Murph's Lounge around 11:30 p.m. Saturday. They found 31-year-old Jose Alvarez of Marietta suffering from a bullet wound to his chest.

Pierce says police believe Alvarez was involved with a physical fight with another man. The other man and a woman left the area in a truck after the fight.

Officers found the truck at a Marietta home around 4 a.m. Sunday. Officers arrested 45-year-old Christopher Brian Stewart.

Stewart was being held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
