Baltimore – A Baltimore woman was able to smuggle a kitchen knife into a Department of Social Services and then used it to stab her 8 month old child in the face, chest and neck.
Kenisha Thomas, 29, was at the Baltimore Social Services office having a supervised visit with her infant daughter that she no longer has custody of.
Visitors are supposed to pass through a metal detector and are subjected to bag screenings, but as the end of their visit ticked away she pulled out a long, wood handled kitchen knife and started stabbing her baby in the neck and face.
Hearing screams of help, co-workers rushed into the conference room to see the mother holding the infant on the table and pressing the blade of the knife to her throat. Kenisha was met with a chair to the face and pinned to the ground until help could arrive.
Kenisha being the lady she is, exclaimed, “I hope my baby is dead!” and then proceeded to bite the man who was holding her down. …
Lake Worth, FL — Lisa Cherry, 46, was arrested on Monday after allegedly stabbing a man during an argument over how sick she was of cooking for him.
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.
Cherry allegedly picked up a kitchen knife and cut the home’s phone line before stabbing the man in the left hand. He refused to go to the hospital so his injury was treated at the scene.
The victim’s sister witnessed the stabbing and collaborated her brother’s account of the assault. Lisa Cherry was apprehended after trying to run from deputies and is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail with a bond set at $1,000. She faces aggravated battery charges with a deadly weapon.
It’s psychotic moments like this that make some men terrified to ask their chemically imbalanced women the age-old question, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”…
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.…
Holiday, FL – Deaundre C. Barnes, 22, who was, as of early Sunday morning, just a sharp-looking parolee, is now a full-blown jailbird once again after stabbing Thomas “Tommy” Grippo in an early morning altercation.
A Pasco County Sheriff’s Department report indicates that Grippo and his girlfriend were arguing at a house on Pleasure Drive (irony noted). Barnes, who was nearby, told them to “shut up,” and then proceeded to argue with Grippo’s girlfriend. Grippo got between the two and the men agreed to exchange blows.
Now brace yourselves for some complex sentence structure, lots of commas, and a semi-colon thrown in for good measure.
I haven’t seen any post-altercation photos of Grippo, but I’m going to guess, based on Barnes’s mugshot, that he lost the fight, more or less, but not before inflicting a near-undetectable stab wound in Grippo’s gut; a wound so insignificant that he didn’t even realize he had it until he’d gotten home.
Barnes, who was sentenced in June to five years probation on a drug-related charge, lists his occupation as “drug dealer” and had recently gained the additional title of “absconder/fugitive” by the Florida Department of Corrections, so we have an inkling of what kind of dude he is.…
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.…
BETHANY, Okla. — Police say a Southern Nazarene University student was stabbed while feeding the homeless this past Saturday.
Zachary Smith, 21, and another student from the university bought a homeless man a pizza and were ministering to him before Smith was attacked. Reports say Smith placed the pizza on the ground near the man right before the man hit Smith in the head and stabbed him several times in the chest.
The students were able to drive to a doughnut shop and call 911. Smith was taken to the hospital, treated for his wounds and then released. His attacker, described as a white male in his 40s, has not been located.
SNU spokeswoman Sarah Roberts said the students were acting on their own and within the school’s motto of “Character, Culture, Christ Almighty This Asshole Is Trying To F*cking Kill Me”
“We are deeply concerned for the students that were involved in this traumatic experience and are most grateful that the injuries sustained were not more serious. The students involved were acting compassionately, as many of our students do on a daily basis, serving the community and meeting human needs as they encounter them,” she said in a statement.…
Erik Cain, 30, apparently got all kinds of slashy with his brother Wednesday evening after learning said brownie had been cut in half. Angered at the sight of the mutilated confection, Cain reportedly armed himself with three steak knives and went to work on his sibling, slashing the man on his forearm, wrist and shoulder.
The slashee, Gene Cain, told police he feared his brother was going to kill him, so he threw a television set at him in retaliation.
Cain was later arrested on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct. Interestingly enough, police say Cain was out on bail on charges he had slashed his girlfriend last month.
Since I can’t seem to find any information on the victim’s condition, I have to assume the wounds were somewhat superficial. If anything, the man learned a very important lesson – never lay a finger on an unstable slasher’s chocolate.…
JOHNSTON, R.I. — A man has been arrested and charged with murdering his wife, dismembering her body and then trying to get rid of the evidence in a fireplace.
I’m not going into details, but I have often wondered if it would be possible to get rid of a body using my fireplace. I still think it is possible, but after reading what happened to 52-year-old Donald K. Greenslit, I may need invest in a working fire extinguisher before ever attempting it.
Firefighters were called to Greenslit’s home because of a fire originating from the basement. They were able to safely contain the fire although two children, ages 3 and 5, were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Investigators would also find the source of the fire were body parts that had been placed in the fireplace.
“It appeared that the remains could be that of a human body. It was actually wrapped in cloth and it was burned severely and was actually cut up into pieces,” said officials.…
Last February, 24-year-old Maksim Gelman stabbed his stepfather to death after arguing over the use of his mother’s car. Afterwards, he took the car and drove to the home of a woman he’d been stalking, injuring a crossing guard along the way.
The woman, 20-year-old Yelena Bulchenko, wasn’t home when he arrived so Gelman stabbed her mother to death instead. He then waited 9 hours for Bulchenko to arrive home and then stabbed her to death as well. But he was far from over.
After Gelman left the home he rear-ended a car and stabbed the driver before stealing the wounded man’s vehicle. As he drove off he hit 62-year-old Stephen Tanenbaum, killing him. Later he would attack a cab driver, damaging the man’s voice box, and then attack another driver, stealing his car.
Canton, GA — Yesterday, 20-year-old Ryan Brunn pleaded guilty to murdering 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera and was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
Rivera went missing from an apartment complex last month after telling friends she was going home to get drinks. Her dead body would be found in one of the complex’s trash bins three days later. She had been severely beaten and stabbed repeatedly in the face, neck and chest.
It wasn’t long before police would arrest Brunn, a maintenance worker at the complex with no criminal history, and indict him on 13 counts including murder and child molestation. Brunn’s attorney had originally said his client would plead not guilty, but instead Brunn entered a guilty plea at a hearing where he also described what happened to Rivera in between the time she was last seen and when she was later found in the trash.
El Cajon, CA — Police say a 10-year-old boy with known anger issues stabbed a 12-year-old friend to death on Monday.
The two boys were part of a group of kids who played in the neighborhood and were in the younger boy’s driveway when the stabbing occurred. No motive has been given, but the two boys got into some kind of altercation that ended with the 10-year-old stabbing the older boy in the chest with a steak knife.
Police say the boy waited at the scene and was there as paramedics arrived and tried to save the wounded boy. The victim was rushed to Rady Children’s Hospital, but he would die an hour later. The 10-year-old, who is reportedly on medication for a chemical imbalance, was taken into police custody.
Neighbors in the area told reporters that the suspect’s emotional problems were well known, but that his tantrums were always verbal and never physical. One added that the boy’s mother was always pro-active in dealing with her son’s issues.
We had a kid like this in our neighborhood growing up.…
Ruckersville, VA — Not much info on this one yet, but police have apparently taken a 5-year-old boy into custody after the kid injured two children and one adult with an “edged weapon” in what neighbors are calling a dispute over a juice box.
Deputies responded to a Ruckersville mobile home park Monday afternoon to find the three suffering from non-life threatening stab wounds.
“I’ve heard of juveniles throwing temper tantrums, but I’ve never heard of anything like this before,” said Greene County Sheriff Steve Smith.
At least one victim is related to the child, but authorities have not revealed which one or the nature of that relationship. Nor have they confirmed whether the alleged stabbing occurred over a juice box.
The child was still in police custody Monday evening and is said to be undergoing some sort of evaluation.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — That loony chick who murdered a 9-year-old girl because she wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Alyssa Bustamante has pleaded guilty to the October 2009 murder of her neighbor, 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten. She was only 15 when she slit the girl’s throat, strangled her and stabbed her before putting her in a grave she had dug previously.
In court, judge Pat Joyce instructed Bustamante to describe how she killed Olten.
“I strangled her and stabbed her in the chest,” Bustamante said looking the judge in the eye.
“Did you cut her throat too?” the judge asked.
“Yes,” Bustamante responded.
Originally charged with first-degree murder, Bustamante pleaded guilty to the lesser murder charge to avoid a trial and a possible life behind bars. In February, Cole County Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce will decide how long Bustamante will spend in prison. A second-degree murder conviction can carry a sentence from anywhere to 10 years to life with the possibility of parole after about 25 years.…
According to an arrest report, an argument broke out between the victim and 31-year-old Ronald Deaver shortly before midnight on December 31 as they watched music videos.
The two ended up outside of Deaver’s apartment, and when the victim admitted his ignorance to Beyoncé’s marital status, he was stabbed and undisclosed number of times.
Police attempted to locate Deaver at his apartment, but a woman inside the residence, 31-year-old Jennifer Fornari, apparently told officers that Deaver no longer lived there.
Deaver was eventually located nearby and taken into custody on a charge of felonious assault. Fornari was later arrested and charged with obstruction of justice.
The victim survived the attack and is currently listed in good condition.
Damn…with this kind of shit, we’re going to need an ‘overreact much?’ tag here at the D’D.…
