A 57-year-old man accused of killing another man after an argument at an Atlantic City poker table is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. Vicente Perez of Georgia faces charges of aggravated manslaughter and weapons charges.

Police say that he and 61-year-old Arthur Prince, of Toms River, fought inside the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort on Saturday afternoon. They say the stabbing happened later in a valet parking lot outside the casino.

Authorities say Prince bled to death after an artery in his cheek was severed.

Perez was being held on $500,000 cash bail.
