UPDATE: An Evansville man is facing murder charges after police say he killed Darryl Foster during a robbery.
E.P.D. arrested Antonio Handley after 49-year-old Foster was found dead in his apartment in the 800 block of West Virginia Street, Wednesday.

Police say Handley told them he went to Foster's house and the two went out to get some beer. After they returned, Handley tells police, he robbed him of jewelry and cash. Foster apparently pulled out some money to give him but “it was low.” Then, Handley told them, he “poked” Foster repeatedly with a pocket knife until he “knew he was done.” Foster supposedly owed him for groceries bought a month ago. Handley then checked into Deaconess E.R. claiming to have hurt himself “doing dishes.” He then tried to check himself into Deaconess Cross Pointe where police found him.
