Meet Robert Jarell Neal, 22, of Burlington, North Carolina.
When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong: Robert Jarell Neal is accused of stabbing deaf man over mistakened signing.
On Wednesday, January 9th, around 4:30-4:45 p.m., this shifty gangbanger was chilling on East Morehead Street, looking for a way to ruin someone’s day.
At the same time, on the same street, Terrance Ervin Daniels, 45, of Burlinton North Carolina, was walking with a friend while having a conversation.
Daniels, a deaf man, was completely unaware of the danger that lie in wait for him.
Neal, observing the deaf man’s signing, viewed the signing as a challenge.
Accepting the challenge, Neal ran over to the deaf man and began stabbing the man.
Neighbors that witnessed the stabbing began screaming for the assailant to stop.
“My voice is gone from me screaming, ‘Stop, stop, leave that man alone,” said Candace Gerrington through tears Thursday.
She said Daniels was trying to defend himself, “Throwing his hands up like this. Next thing I saw was somebody stabbing and grinding him,” recalled Gerringon.
Neal is being held under a $500,000 secured bond in the Alamance County Detention Facility.
Neal’s criminal history includes 3 Assaults on a Female, Assault with Intent to Kill, 2 Communicating Threats, DWI, Injury to Real Property, Injury to personal property and 2 Resist, delay or obstruction of officers.
Police are still investigating and ask that anyone with further information would call them at (336) 229-3500.
I think I have a candidate for Dumb Criminal of the Year…
But I can’t pass out the award to early, the year is very young…
Meet Micah Harrison, 30, from Robertsdale, Alabama.
Micah Harrison, 30, Robertsdale, Alabama
This father of three, two girls aged 4 and 5,and one boy aged 2, stands accused of stabbing his 2 year-old son to death January, 9th.
But let’s start at the beginning…
Harrison traveled with his children from Robertsdale, Alabama, to Noblesville, Alabama, to visit his mother Pamela Harrison, early Wednesday morning.
The children went out to play in the snow with some of the neighborhood children while their dad visited with their grandmother.
At some point during the play, two year-old Michael fell down a hill and begin to cry.
Neighbors witnessed Harrison storm outside.
Michael, still crying, took off running down the sidewalk of the Autumn Breeze apartment complex.
Harrison chased down the little boy, grabbed him up by the coat, and spanked him.
The girls were seen begging their father for a little more playtime as Harrison forced them indoors, while little Michael struggled.
One neighbor stated that she verbally confronted Harrison for his behavior, but after glancing at her, he continued to force the children into the apartment. Then, the neighbor said there was screaming and a dog barking.
But the neighbor had no idea what hell was brewing on the other side of the Harrison’s door.
As the the children played outside, Pamela Harrison was trying to convince her son that no one was watching, following him, nor trying to kill him.
She told authorities Harrison was ranting that someone was trying to kill him and attacked a closet door with a claw hammer prior to allegedly killing his son.
After Harrison brought the children in, she later noticed Harrison move to the room where Michael was playing.
She “observed Micah on top of Michael,” court documents said, and saw Harrison “stab Michael two to three times with a kitchen knife.” The woman took the knife away and informed Harrison that “he had just killed his son.” She then called 911.
Medical personnel declared the boy dead when they arrived.
Officers found blood on the bed, walls, furniture and ceiling. They also saw a nail puller that Harrison may have used. Investigators said the tool was consistent with the boy’s forehead injury.
Micah Harrison changed the scenery of Autumn Breeze, Wednesday night.
Which brings us to the here and now…
Today, Thursday, January 10th, FOX59 reports:
Michael William Harrison, 30, struggled with Hamilton County sheriff deputies, minutes before his court appearance, and was removed from the room.
A distraught Harrison returned to the hearing an hour later, shackled at the waist and ankles.
“I want death,” he told the judge. “I can’t do this right now. There’s too many questions.”
Throughout the hearing, Harrison wept, put his head on the table and even attempted to walk away.
“Ya’ll should take me out back and shoot me,” said Harrison. “I killed my poor little baby.”
Harrison was arrested Wednesday night in a Noblesville apartment after police located 2-year-old Michael Harrison, who sustained fatal stab wounds to the chest and forehead.
Harrison is being held on a suicide watch at the Hamilton County Jail pending his next hearing in February. When advised to his right to a trial, Harrison replied, “I hope I don’t live that long.”
He faces a March 12 trial date.
Prosecutor Lee Buckingham indicated he may seek life without parole if Harrison is convicted.
Buckingham witnessed the video feed of Harrison struggling with deputies and confessing to murder.
“I won’t discuss any of the facts or circumstances of the case or what happened in the courtroom today or how that would affect our proceeding.”
If this story doesn’t tug at your heart strings, you have to be heartless…
This father is going through something big…
And this baby lost his life because no one recognize it in time…
For this entire family, my heart is aching for them…
Meet Zachary Cole Weston, 21, of Salt Lake City, Utah.
On October 3rd, neighbors of 84 year-old, Joyce Dexter could hear screams from her Salt Lake home.
Worried, the neighbors dialed 911 to have the officers go check on Dexter.
When officers arrived, they found Weston standing over Dexter’s mutilated body with a bloody knife.
Weston had blood on his clothing and hands when police found him and later told investigators he had cut his grandmother’s jugular, the records said.
‘I stabbed my grandma,’ he told them. A medical examiner later determined that nine of the 111 stab wounds were to the heart, the Deseret News reported.
Weston has been charged with aggravated murder, a capital offense. Family members told the Salt Lake Tribune that Weston suffers from mental illness.
They described his life as a ‘tragedy in slow motion’, adding that he had bounced about between living with different family members his whole life.
‘Zach was always a sweetheart, but he started receding into his mental illness to where he was almost catatonic,’ his uncle, Charles Kulander said. ‘He was withdrawn, lethargic.’
Kulander described the grandmother, nicknamed Honey, as ‘a martyr by any definition’.
‘If anybody was closer and loved Zach more than her, I don’t know how. She was always there for him. The rest of us had just had it up to here [with Weston], but Honey always kept her door open.’
He was arrested in 2010 after he was accused of pushing his mother and striking a police officer. He pleaded guilty to one of two assault charges and was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation and complete any recommended treatment as part of his sentence.
On August 9 he was arrested again and charged with two counts of assault and interfering with a police officer after slapping a hospital employee and punching another in the face.
He was also charged with assault for hitting his father during a September 27 argument.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill declined to comment Friday on a possible motive in the stabbing, but he praised police for responding so quickly.
