A central Florida man says he stabbed a friend and his dog over the last can of beer.

While waiting at the Marion County jail to make a court appearance Tuesday, Daniel Trent told the Ocala Star-Banner that he stabbed Mark Durham in self-defense Sunday night.

Trent is charged with second-degree murder. He says he argued with Durham over the last can of Natural Ice, after they had finished two cases of beer. Trent says Durham grabbed a knife from Trent's kitchen and cut Trent's hand.

That's when Trent says he grabbed the knife and stabbed Durham in the stomach and chest. He says Durham then told him to stab his beagle.

A judge ordered Trent held without bond.
