The Herald reports that a bartender at a Chicopee bar accused of fatally stabbing a customer has been ordered held without bail. A not guilty plea was entered on behalf of 35-year-old Derek Fish at his arraignment Monday in Chicopee District Court. He is scheduled back in court Friday.
Police say Fish stabbed Eamonn Gallagher in the chest at the B Bar at about 2 a.m. on Sunday as the bar was closing. The two men knew each other and got into some sort of an argument, although police did not immediately say what sparked it. Gallagher, found outside, was taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield where he was pronounced dead. A knife was apparently recovered at the scene.
