An Edna man was stabbed to death by his cousin early Sunday morning, Police Chief Clinton Wooldridge said.
Olin Anthony "Champ" Robinson, 29, died in the Jackson County Hospital on Sunday after he was stabbed two times in the upper torso, the sheriff said. The victim's cousin, Almaad Robinson, 21, also of Edna, is in custody.
