(AP) BERLIN, N.J. - A southern New Jersey man is charged with murder after authorities say he used a bow and arrow to kill another after a fistfight.

Twenty-five-year-old Timothy Canfield of Berlin was charged Tuesday.

Authorities say Canfield was at his home when another resident got into a fistfight Monday night with 25-year-old Kereti Paulsen of Cape May Court House.

After the fight broke up, authorities say Paulsen was outside the home and Canfield followed him with a compound bow and a quiver of arrows.

They say Paulsen was shot in the stomach and died after the arrow tore through a vein in his pelvis.

Authorities say Canfield admitted to dumping the bow and arrows in a wooded area in nearby Winslow. He is being held at the Camden County Jail.
