Police: Man Stabs Mom, Assaults Another Woman With Chicken
YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Police said an Ypsilanti man is accused of stabbing his mother with a fork and hitting another woman over the head with a frozen chicken.
Frederick McKaney, 40, was arraigned in a Jackson courtroom on Thursday on two felony assault charges, one count of assault and battery and one count of resisting an officer.
"He stabbed his mother in the back of the neck when she refused to give him money, and then, an hour later, he attacked a neighbor woman with a chicken," Jackson County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Blumer told the Ann Arbor news.
Police said McKaney went to his mother's house and demanded money. When she refused, he stabbed her and took off on his bicycle, police said.
A short time later, he encountered two other women talking on the sidewalk on Woodbridge Street.
The woman said he said something nasty to them and hit one of them over the head with 10 pounds of frozen chicken.
The woman went to the hospital and got stitches in her head.
McKaney's mother suffered minor injuries from the stabbing.
I stumbled over this story while at Origins and figured I just had to relate it. It's not every day you see a news story about someone assaulting someone else with poultry. I wonder if they classify the chicken as a deadly weapon. I mean, it was frozen. I'm sure you could possibly kill someone with a 10 pound bowling ball so death is just as likely with a 10 pound oven stuffer roaster.
In other news, I've finished uploading the videos from the con up to the laptop. I just have to go through and stick some of the clips together and then port them up to google. I'm a bit stymied at the moment since watching some of that shaky camera footage has made me a weeee bit nauseous. I'm taking a break and hoping the urge to spew vomit passes quickly. I should have taken more care not to wiggle the flip ultra around while I was filming. Then again, it just might be the percocets which are causing the problem. It's hard to tell.
