We’ve been told time and again not to run with scissors because of the harm that would happen if you tripped and fell on them. Or, maybe you have heard of the Struwwelpeter stories, one of which is about the boy whose thumbs were cut off by giant scissors because he would not stop sucking them.
Oh, the stories parents tell their children.
This, however, is not a story to be told to children. Instead, this is a story about Damon Wylie, who was charged with first-degree murder after he allegedly stabbed Marcus Miles to death in Coatesville, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The stabbing occurred after the two men had an altercation. Wylie was found at Crozer Chester Medical Center, where he was being treated for injuries “consistent with using scissors as a weapon.”
Was this really a first-degree murder?
