CHERRY HILL, N.J. - May 30, 2011 (WPVI) -- Authorities in New Jersey are investigating a deadly stabbing that reportedly stemmed from a drinking game.
The Camden County prosecutor's office tells Action News a beer pong game was taking place around 2:15 a.m. at a home on the 1200 block of Kay Drive in Cherry Hill.
