At the brief age of 19, with high hopes of becoming an auto mechanic and following in the foot steps of his father, one young man lost his life in what very well may have been a case of simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This nineteen-year-old was found stabbed inside a house, which had burned. The situation is double sided in that apparently the young man was stabbed and then burned in the house to cover up the criminal act. One other individual found in the burned home showed signs of being tortured prior to burning in the house.
One of the accused men in this horrible criminal act pleaded not guilty last week to second-degree arson. Apparently although both men had been tortured and were attempting to flee the home before being overtaken by the fire. The other individual was charged with one count of first-degree murder, three counts of second-degree murder and one count of second-degree arson. He was ordered to be held without bail by a State Supreme Court Justice.
The mother of the nineteen year old said that her son had gone to the particular area to catch a ride to school and had no relationship with either of the suspects. The mother, distraught said she really couldn’t imagine her son causing anyone so much anger that they would do this to him.
