A North Fort Myers man is in custody after stabbing a man over a rented room on Friday.

Deputies say 35-year-old Sean Champ and his girlfriend asked a man if they could stay at his place and pay him $50 for one night, but the victim refused.

According to deputies, later that night Champ went back to the man's house and the two got into a fight.

When the victim asked Champ to leave, deputies say Champ stabbed him.
