Arthur Lee Washington, 52, Bayou Body Count No. 114

Two residents of a northeast-side mental care facility got into an argument yesterday, and one stabbed the other to death.

Jarvis De-Allo Leverett, 35, has been charged with murder in the death of Arthur Lee Washington, 52.

The incident happened about 7:15 p.m.

"The two men got into an argument about one sending the other to the store to buy cigarettes," HPD says. "Leverett did not want to go since he had already done so earlier in the day. At some point during the argument, Leverett stabbed Washington several times."

Leverett admitted his actions to police, HPD says.
