A can of beer led to the fight that resulted in the fatal stabbing of a Springfield man, prosecutors said Thursday.
Patricia A. Gibson, 44, who is accused of stabbing her longtime boyfriend at their apartment Tuesday night, was charged Thursday with two counts of first-degree
Robert L. Porter, 54, died at Memorial Medical Center at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, about an hour after he allegedly was stabbed by Gibson in their apartment at 3203 S. Sixth St.
First assistant state's attorney Steve Weinhoeft, in asking that Gibson's $1 million bond be maintained, said Gibson stabbed Porter in the upper chest with a steak knife during an argument over a can of Natural Light beer.
First of all, I think it’s funny the paper identified the brand of the beer. The story doesn’t say if the argument that led to the stabbing was over who had to drink the crappy beer and who got the better one (say, a PBR). Because you’d have to stab me to get me to drink a Natural Light.
Either way, I hope Ms. Gibson, if found guilty, is put away in the big Department of Corrections beer fridge for a long time. What a senseless act over nothing.
