One day Sméagol had his birthday, Déagol gave a customary present (albeit begrudgingly, as he was a mean little soul), which he claimed was more than what he could afford. Later they went fishing to the Gladden Fields, when a big fish pulled him, and saw something gleaming in the riverbed. When he swam out, he saw that what he discovered was a gold ring. As Sméagol (being even meaner and greedier) thought that Déagol's gift was poor and insufficient, he used his birthday as an excuse to claim the ring; and as Déagol refused to hand it over, Sméagol strangled him, and hid his body cleverly so that the others didn't find it.
