    A Baltimore jury convicted a man of stabbing a man to death using a sword drawn from a walking cane after a dispute over a football wager.

    Todd Marrow was convicted Wednesday of second-degree murder and a weapons charge in the death of Orville Chamblee last year, prosecutors said.

    The men argued over a bet and Marrow told Chamblee's girlfriend he wanted to kill Chamblee, prosecutors said. The next day, surveillance cameras captured a confrontation in which Marrow swung an object at Chamblee, making stabbing motions, prosecutors said.

    Chamblee was found unresponsive a few blocks away and died.

    Marrow was later found in the same vehicle as a cane that doubled as a sheath, prosecutors said.

    Marrow acknowledges they fought, but denies using a weapon, prosecutors said.
