A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his roommate because he turned on the lights at night, police in the United Arab Emirates said.

The Dubai Criminal Court heard that around 10:00 p.m., a dispute broke out between two roommates over the lights in their room and it ended with murder.

According to the police investigation, 29-year-old F.K. decided to go to bed at his home in the Dubai Investments Park, but M.Y. still wanted to read and have the lights turned on.

The suspect and the victim kept on turning the lights on and off before F.K. grabbed a knife and stabbed M.Y.

A third roommate, R.R., was alerted to the fight by a concerned neighbor, but when he arrived at the apartment, he found M.Y. bleeding from his chest.

Paramedics who arrived at the scene, transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead.
