Nursing Home Employee Stabbed to Death By Visitor Who Held a Grudge

 The man who stabbed a nursing home janitor to death at the facility has admitted to police that he had a grudge against the janitor. The 48-year-old janitor was stabbed to death last week by a man who was visiting his brother at the facility. According to the arrest warrant, the suspect had an argument with the janitor months ago at the facility.

Last Thursday, the man brought a knife to the facility, stalked the janitor, and stabbed him multiple times in the neck. The victim was rushed to the hospital but the wounds were ultimately fatal. The suspect has now been charged with first degree murder and is being held without bail.

Others at the facility have reported that the janitor was a well-liked employee who was excellent at his job and cared about the residents.  The facility claims that they do have security at the nursing home. The suspect's brother had been in the facility for five months. Prior to the incident, the man had no criminal record. For more, read the story.
