Then they found a 54-year-old man inside the porch area, also with stab wounds. And on Thursday, police announced that this guy, 18-year-old Anthony Waters, has been charged in the crime.

According to police, Waters was in the house in an attempt to get the woman’s car keys so that he could steal her car. Police say that the man and woman surprised Waters, so he stabbed them. Because you really need to stab a 71-year-old woman 20 times to get away from her.




According to the police statement: "The officers cleared the house of any other occupants, and found the rear door propped open by a box of kittens."

The home has been described as a hoard, and the SPCA removed a large number of cats and kittens from it.

Waters is charged with attempted murder, aggravated and simple assault, robbery, burglary and theft, among other charges.

    Who cares how old he looks–he is a criminal and hopefully put away for a long time. Maybe by the time he get outs he will look older than age.
