MIAMI (CBS4) – A Liberty City man accused of stabbing a neighbor to death on Christmas Eve because he wouldn’t turn his music down will remain behind bars.

Over the weekend, a judge denied to grant bond to 51-year old Dorian Hinkson who has been charged with second degree murder.

According to police, at approximately 9:30 a.m., 24-year-old Phillip Arthur approached Hinkson in the 1300 block of NW 66 Street about having his music much too loud.

Hinkson became “enraged” after Arthur told him to turn the music down because his wife was sleeping.

Police said that’s when Hinkson grabbed a knife and stabbed Arthur once in the chest in front of his children and wife in the courtyard of the complex.  He was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he died.

Hinkson remained on the scene and was taken into custody by Miami police.

    A hard lesson. Police need to take these disturbance calls more seriously and not wait for someone to bleed to death to respond within a reasonable time. Citizens should not be put in the position of having to confront a neighbor that is obviously inconsiderate, disregarding everyone’s peace. I feel sorryf for this man who was simply trying to care for his wife’d wellbeing. I too am the victim of loud and inconsiderate neighbors and am forced to call police just about every week for the past five years, and the response is an hour to two hours. And many times having to call the station and request a sergeant is the only way to get a unit to come by. Needless to say I am constantly put a desperate situation. It happened this time in a complex in Liberty City but it happens in Hialeah also… Way too often.

    this Nguy needs to be eaten by animals alive; not killed, because that would be actually good for him.
