Video surveillance from the store appears to capture Lotius charging at Pison and stabbing him. Officials say Pison died later at a hospital.

Documents say Lotius admitted to detectives that he tried to hurt Pison but said he couldn’t remember what actually happened because he was drunk.

His bail was set at $800,000.
