A Greenville man accused of fatally stabbing his neighbor early Tuesday made his first court appearance Wednesday morning at the Pitt County Detention Center. 

Alvin Jerome Tyson, 30, is accused of stabbing Melvin Lee Tyson in the lower abdomen during a fight at 1740 Kathryn Lane. Tyson died at the scene from his injuries.

Maj. Paula Dance with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office said detectives believe the argument and fight between the two men was alcohol related. She said the men were not related but were good friends.

Alvin Tyson appeared in court on Wednesday shackled in an orange jumpsuit as he sat on a wooden bench and closed his eyes.

Judge Wendy Hazleton set his bond at $750,000. Alvin Tyson told Hazelton he will hire his own attorney. His next court date is scheduled for July 25. 

Alvin Tyson, 1488 Kathryn Lane, also is facing additional charges to an open count of first degree murder. The charges are possession of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm by a felon. 

At the time of the stabbing, Tyson was on probation for previous drug offenses.
