Floriduh: Man Stabs Parents at Thanksgiving Dinner

What is it about Floriduh? Of course, maybe he wanted the drumstick, or, perhaps they did not take the age-old advice to not discuss religion or politics?

Floriduh

From The Daily Mail:

A Florida man repeatedly stabbed his elderly parents during a Thanksgiving Day argument that became physical, police said.

Edwin Daugherty, 34, was arrested on Thursday on two counts of attempted murder, according to News 6.

Authorities said they found Daugherty walking down the street when they responded to a 911 call in Port Orange.

It’s unknown what prompted the argument but deputies told the station they believe Daugherty became irate with his mother, Patsy Daugherty, 72.

Her son then placed her in a headlock.

As his 76-year-old father, Thomas Daugherty, tried to intervene, Edwin Daugherty placed him in a headlock before pushing him to the ground.

He then preceded to stab his father multiple times in the chest with a steak knife that had a 4-inch blade, News 6 reported.

Patsy Daugherty was stabbed after she attempted to help her husband, deputies said.

“Mom, how many times have I told you not to put chestnuts in the stuffing!!!”

Why do I suspect that alcohol might have been involved?
