A 52-year-old man faces murder charges in the slaying of a 26-year-old man whose throat was slit as they gathered around a bonfire in Port Huron.

Michael Shawn Poole was arraigned on charges of open murder. Victim David Long, of Port Huron, died at an area hospital.

Police say the men were part of a small group at the bonfire Friday night and that the two had been arguing throughout the day.

The suspect fled after Long was attacked. He later was arrested at his home in Port Huron, northeast of Detroit.

Tammy Jewor tells the Times Herald in Port Huron that her son was "going to the store ... and he never came back."

Poole was held without bond.
