Although Ferguson was only in court for a few minutes, new details about the murder were revealed. There is body camera video, a recorded 911 call and a statement from the men's mother, who heard them arguing and called 911 around 3:50 a.m.

According to the arrest narrative in the case, Daryl Ferguson was stabbed in the stomach, back and chest with a kitchen knife, and he was pronounced dead at 4:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The victim and defendant's family members were in court Friday for the brief proceeding. The grand jury now has 45 days to hear the case and issue a decision. For now, John Ferguson remains in the Oneida County Jail.
