A 52-year-old Tampa man is facing manslaughter charges after allegedly beating his roommate to death in a dispute over a chicken foot.
James Jugo allegedly attacked Benjamin Calderon, 56, after he took the chicken foot from a skillet where Jugo was cooking, it has been reported.
An autopsy revealed Calderon, who had recently become homeless, suffered internal bleeding after being hit numerous times on the face, neck and elsewhere.
Police have said Jugo admitted he beat his roommate with his first.
A witness told police that she saw Jugo hit Calderon with a board.
Jugo allegedly attacked Calderon after he took the chicken foot from a skillet where he was cooking.
He said: "No one deserves to die over a chicken foot."
Authorities in Tampa say Jugo was arrested after the beating death of Mr Calderon on Saturday.
Jugo was jailed on $15,000 bail.
Court records did not indicate whether he had hired a lawyer.
Public records show Jugo has been arrested 19 times previously in Florida.
