  • Cuarddaro Lewis admitted clubbing Joseph Payne with a pole.

Joseph Payne supposedly owed money to Cuarddarro D. Lewis, leading to a fight that cost him his life.

Payne, 40, and Lewis, 22, fought at 3014 Cleveland on March 30. Payne got the better of the younger Lewis in the fight. But it wasn't over.

A few minutes after the fight, Payne accused Lewis of taking his cell phone. Lewis denied it. When Payne turned to walk away, Lewis clubbed him in the back of the head with a pole, according to a couple of witnesses.

Payne never got up. He died from his injuries on

April 7.

Lewis later admitted to detectives that he and Payne had fought, and

he'd lost. Lewis added that Payne accusing him of stealing a cell phone

set him off. He was tired of Payne "fucking with me" and so he picked up

a pipe and hit Payne, who had his back turned, twice -- once in the

back and once in the back of the head.

Lewis is charged with

second-degree murder and armed criminal action.
