    Quentin Wyche (right) has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing of FIU football player Kendall Berry.

    The man accused in the stabbing of Florida International University football star Kendall Berry will be staying behind bars after a Miami-Dade judge denied his request for bond Tuesday.

    Quentin Wyche, 23, is facing second-degree murder charges in the stabbing death of Berry on FIU's campus in March 2010. According to police, the incident began at the school's rec center when Wyche insulted Berry's girlfriend and threw cookies in her face.

    As the two men exchanged words and the argument became physical, Wyche stabbed Berry, allegedly with scissors. The 22-year-old Berry was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died. Wyche later turned himself in to police.
