    Authorities say a dispute over the volume of music led to a fatal stabbing inside a Massachusetts home.

    The Standard-Times reports that William Macomber was held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder at his arraignment on Monday.

    Police say the 55-year-old Macomber stabbed 27-year-old Steven Doyle in the New Bedford home where they both rented rooms just after midnight Sunday.

    Police say the men got into a fight because Macomber was trying to sleep and complained that Doyle was playing music too loud.
