Man Stabbed At Key West Festival

Police have arrested a 23-year-old Fort Lauderdale man accused in a fatal stabbing during Key West's biggest annual festival.

Nicholas Ferro was arrested Sunday on second-degree murder
charges. Officials say it's the first homicide in the 30-year
history of Fantasy Fest -- a bawdy costume party that annually draws
more than 30,000.

The killing happened early Saturday after some locals got into a
fight with men from out-of-town. The victim was 23-year-old Marques
Butler, a former track and basketball star at Key West High.

He was rushed to a hospital and underwent surgery, but died
shortly afterward.
