One friend dead, another in jail for the crime. Now, we hear from a man who knew both Benjamin Miller and his suspected killer Joshua Albright. Police say Albright stabbed Miller in the neck early Friday morning during a fight. He died at the hospital. Family members and friends of both men are still trying to understand why it all happened.
The friend we spoke with says both Miller and Albright had a good relationship. With one dead and another behind bars, he says the families will be hit the hardest. Crime scene tape and police officers take over the street near 30-year-old Benjamin Miller's residence. Police were called there just before 6 o'clock Friday morning, where they found Miller in the street, where they believe 27-year-old Joshua Albright stabbed him multiple times, Miller later died from his injuries.
"For them to know each other and for it to happen to them, it's kind of speechless," Friend Darnell Golden said.
Darnell Golden is a mutual friend of both Miller and Albright. He says the news is still hard to believe.
"It's kind of weird when I can't even call my friend any more. I can't see either one of them, really," Golden said.
Police say Miller's girlfriend and Albright went out Thursday night to celebrate his birthday. Albright dated the same woman in the past. When they returned Friday morning to this cottage near 59th and Madison, that's when the fighting began.
Golden says Miller and Albright were typically friendly with one another and hung out at each other's houses.
"I never really thought of either one of them being violent or having that fight in them or wanting to start confrontations with anyone, you know," Golden said.
Both men leave behind a family. Golden says Albright has a 3-year-old son, and Miller had a son and daughter.
Police arrested Albright for second degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony. Albright will be in court Tuesday afternoon where the County Attorney is expected to formally charge him.
