Police say a 19-year-old man jailed on charges he killed a Pittsburgh-area community activist has told a witness the slaying happened after the victim had a dispute with his alleged attacker over marijuana.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 19-year-old Sean Overton, of Moon Township, who was arrested Wednesday in the slaying of 61-year-old Isaiah Dent, who was found stabbed and beaten Monday in his apartment.

Friends describe Dent as a community activist who also sold jewelry and African-themed clothing that he designed.

A witness who helped lead police to Overton says the suspect confessed to killing Dent because the victim allegedly stole marijuana from Overton and also didn't pay the full amount for another marijuana purchase.

Overton is charged with criminal homicide, robbery and tampering with evidence.



And yet people out there will argue till there face is blue that marijuana is not addictive and harmless

Not according to Mitch


I believe marijuana should be illegal in our country. It is the pathway to drug usage by our society, which is a great scourge -- which is one of the great causes of crime in our cities, and I believe we are at a state where, of course, we are very concerned about people who are suffering, and there are various means of providing pain management.”
Mitt Romney

It's just a shame Obama never got busted when he was "doing a little blow" as he puts it.

Dancer, it's just like a gun, as long as it's laying there, nothing will happen. It's when it gets used in certain ways it becomes dangerous.
