(AP) — The brother of a Los Angeles Dodgers fan who was stabbed to death in San Francisco after the team played the San Francisco Giants says he swung a chair at the suspect during a fight.
Robert Preece told KGO-TV (http://bit.ly/1768pC5) that he was protecting his brother after another group of people came up behind them. He described the chair he swung as an aluminum beach chair that was a gift from his father from Dodger Stadium.
Preece's brother, Jonathan Denver, was stabbed to death on Sept. 25 after attending the Dodgers-Giants game. Police have said Denver's group, many wearing Dodgers garb, got into a shouting match over the Dodgers with the suspect, 21-year-old Michael Montgomery.
Montgomery's father has said his son acted in self-defense. Montgomery has not been charged.

The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders will both be playing in prime time on Sunday night. The 49ers are the featured game on Sunday night game on NBC as they take on the Houston Texans. Game time is at 5:30. The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers were originally scheduled to play at 1:05pm on Sunday, but because the Oakland A's playoff game on Saturday night, crews need time to prepare the playing surface for football. So, the game has been pushed back to 8:30pm. The NFL Network will televise the game at 8:30pm
