Buffalo, NY — A grandmother was shot to death by police after she stabbed her young grandson to death outside her home.
A scene of unimaginable horror is what two Buffalo police officers encountered when they were flagged down and brought to the front porch of a home. There they found 22-year-old Tiffany Fears performing CPR on her 4-year-old son, Roderick Geiger III, who was bleeding to death after having been stabbed in the stomach and chest by his grandmother.
While the officers began working on the boy they were charged by the child’s 38-year-old-grandmother, Charlene Fears, who was armed with two large knives. She ignored repeated demands to drop the knives and, fearing for their safety, was subsequently shot and killed by one of the officers.
Roderick was rushed to Women and Children’s Hospital, but later died. Charlene’s two other children, who were in the home at the time of the stabbing, were not harmed. The officer who shot Charlene, a 25-year veteran, is not being named and the case is being investigated by the homicide squad and internal affairs.…
Kevin Kemp, 20, says he was chatting with the family friend on Xbox Live when the discussion turned into an argument. The argument was not about a game, but rather a longstanding feud between the two. Fighting words were exchanged and Kemp told the teen to jump if he was feeling froggy.
“I’m like, ‘Bro, if want to do this, come over to my house and we’ll do this right now,’” Kemp said.
Kemp heard the teen’s headset hit the floor and was surprised at how fast he covered the short distance between their houses. He was also surprised to learn that the teen was not there for a fistfight when he walked through his front door with a gun in one hand, and a knife in the other. After pushing past Kemp’s mother, the teen walked up to Kemp’s bedroom, took aim, and fired.…

Everett, WA — The looker to the left is 25-year-old Ambrosia Riche – she’s been accused of jumping into a random car and gettin’ all kinds of stabby on the dumbfounded driver, leaving him dazed, confused and holey.
According to witnesses, Riche had been seen wandering up and down the street just moments before the bizarre attack, trying to get into several cars. At one point, witnesses say, she jumped on the hood of a passing vehicle but the driver managed to safely “shake her off.”
Along came our victim, Richard Lynn…
Lynn told police he was slowing down at a stop sign when Riche lunged through an open rear window and attacked, stabbing him numerous times in the head, chest and arm.
Lynn was able to scramble out of the vehicle, but Riche was right on his heels, stabbing away.

CLEVELAND, OH – Here’s a crazy one out of Cleveland where a woman has been accused of stabbing her best friend while she sat behind the wheel of a car. The stabbed woman then tried to hit her attacker with her car, but hit her attacker’s 2-year-old daughter instead. The woman and the toddler both died.
The incident happened on Thursday night when 29-year-old Kimberly Black and her best friend, 29-year-old Sharice Swain, got into an argument while sitting in a running car parked in Black’s driveway. Police say Black left the vehicle, retrieved a knife from her home, and then fatally stabbed Swain in the face and neck.
As neighbors ran to assist Swain, she stepped on the gas in an attempt to run over Black, but ended up hitting Black’s two daughters, 2-year-old Kimshia Ruffin and 1-year-old Taraji Ruffin, before running into Black’s home and collapsing part of the roof.
For reasons unknown, Black stripped naked and stood in the street holding both of her injured toddlers. One neighbor says she picked up a bloody, broken Kimisha after Black dropped her and cradled her until help arrived.…

According to reports, Leon “Tater” Thomas III and his 11-year-old sister were at their grandparents, where their 14-year-old cousin also lived, when the stabbing took place.
The kids were in a front room of the two-story apartment while the grandparents were upstairs. Leon’s sister ran upstairs to get them when the older girl’s temper started to get out of control over reasons unknown. When she returned downstairs, she found that her cousin had repeatedly stabbed Leon.

The proverbial sh*t apparently hit the fan shortly after a verbal confrontation between Whaley, his grandmother, 69-year-old Barbara Denmark, and another relative as the family was preparing to return home from a mini-vacation in Daytona Beach.
“Chris is exceptionally angry because he’s been forced to come home and couldn’t stay with new best friends,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “So angry that he decided to kill his grandma who he’d been living with for the last five years.”
Family members told police that Whaley lived with Denmark for the last five years because, due to his “mischievous” behavior, she was the only one that would take him in. Shocking.
Anyway, upon his return home, Whaley began plotting. He decided to off grandma first, then figured he’d head on over to the aunt’s house and kill her, too.
With a knife in each hand, Whaley allegedly entered his grandmother’s bathroom and proceeded to slash and stab, leaving the woman with nearly 25 stab wounds.…

Police report that the 56-year-old male victim said Cherry began drinking beer and throwing food out the door because she was sick of cooking for him. He admitted to taking away her beer and threatening to cut her pony tail off if she didn’t stop throwing things.

Las Vegas, NV –Last year I posted about Carl Guilford, the teenager who claimed the devil made him suffocate his 6-year-old cousin to death and then later stab his cellmate to death with a pencil. On Monday, he pleaded not guilty.
His attorney, Deputy Public Defender Norman Reed, intends to argue that his client is not guilty by reason of insanity even though his client was determined to be sane enough to stand trial.
For those of you who may have missed this story when we reported it last August, Guilford, then 18-years-old, was arrested and charged with suffocating his 6-year-old cousin. He said that after he killed the boy, the Devil told him “well done.”
After being arrested for that murder, he was placed in a cell at the Clark County Detention Center with Francesco Sanfilippo, a 39-year-old who had gotten busted possessing child pornography.
A few weeks later, Guilford attacked Sanfilippo as he sat at a table and began stabbing the man in the neck with a pencil.…
When police arrived on scene, they found 56-year-old Tony Jackson suffering from a massive wound to the gut. So massive, police say, his internal organs and intestines were visible and/or falling out.
According to investigators, after a long standing dispute with Jackson, Lott had finally had enough and walked over to the man’s home and opened up his gut with his big-ass, razor-sharp knife.
Police say Lott resisted arrest and was tasered while being taken into custody. And though he later admitted to quarreling with Jackson, he denied stabbing the guy. Lott is now facing charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer without violence.
Prosecutors have asked for increased bond, calling Lott a habitual violent offender. (Lott spent a year in prison after he was convicted of assaulting a pregnant woman with a deadly weapon and holding her captive in his home back in ’07).…
The teen was hanging out with a couple friends late last month, when he allegedly stabbed the 14-year-old victim in the gut with a 4-inch knife, causing a severe laceration to the boy’s intestine.
Afterwards, police say, the alleged stabber walked the stabbee to a nearby auto repair shop, where an ambulance was summoned.
A third teen claims to have witnessed the pokin’, and later told police he heard the alleged stabber tell the victim to pretend he had fallen on the blade.
The 15-year-old, who police say has no criminal background or questionable mental health history, reportedly told police he poked his friend because an Ouija board commanded it.
Weslaco police spokesman J.P. Rodriguez admits that the case is “a little eerie” but said investigators believe the boy used the Ouija board to rationalize the attack.
“He actually believed what the Ouija board advised him, that the friend was the cause of his problems,” Rodriguez said.…
Las Vegas, NV — A woman accused of stabbing her 6-year-old daughter to death with a pair of scissors reportedly told police she did so because she felt an “evil presence” in her home and believed her child may have been possessed by a demon.
After being found naked on the streets of Las Vegas, covered in blood from what she claimed was “the Lamb of God,” 27-year-old Danielle Slaughter apparently expressed disbelief that she had disposed of her child in such a way.
“Did I kill my daughter? Is she dead?” Slaughter questioned police, later claiming that “wasn’t like her.”
Slaughter, who apparently began taking the dietary supplement Hydroxycut about four days prior to the murder, reportedly told police she had felt an evil presence in the home and claimed “she never felt this way before,” she just wanted to remove the evil from the house.
Slaughter claims 6-year-old Kyla Franks began speaking and laughing in an evil voice Sunday evening. When Kyla began kicking and clawing at her, Slaughter said, she grabbed a pair of scissors and stabbed the girl multiple times.…
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A man has been accused of stabbing his neighbor to death after an argument over dog shit, making this the second story this year involving disputes over dog defecation.
Police say that sometime around 10 a.m. Sunday, 37-year-old Robert Wright took his dog out for a walk. Witnesses say he got into an argument with his next-door neighbor, 56-year-old Ellsworth Colbert, after Wright’s dog crapped in his yard.
I cannot find any articles stating anyone witnessed Colbert stabbing Wright, but Wright was found minutes later suffering from stab wounds. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
An hour later, Colbert was arrested and later charged with second degree murder while armed.
Colbert was a volunteer worker for the D.C. City Council campaign of Kevin B. Chavous, an insignificant point being brought up by most news articles leading to Chavous releasing the following statement:
“The first thing I want to say is that my deepest condolences go out to Mr. Wright’s family. This is an awful tragedy.…
Lake Wales, FL — A teen accused of brutally murdering his 67-year-old grandmother, shooting the woman in the back of the head with a crossbow and stabbing her approximately 93 times, apparently did so because he was pissed off at his uncle.
Jasper Aristotle Smiddie, 19, was taken into custody Wednesday after confessing the alleged crime to his father.
According to police, Smiddie initially intended to kill his uncle, but decided to take his anger out on grandma instead. That way, police say, his uncle would have to live with the death of his mother for the rest of his life.
Police said Smiddie, who lived with his grandmother, Gloria Helfrich, as well as his uncle, confronted the woman in her bedroom on Tuesday. He first fired the crossbow, then repeatedly stabbed the woman in the back, neck and face. He then left the room, but returned a short time later to bash the woman in the face with a wrench.
In what police are calling a “bizarre twist,” Smiddie locked his grandmother’s bedroom door and waited for his uncle to get home.…
