Trial ordered in slaying of homeless vet in Doylestown
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - September 10, 2013 (WPVI) -- A man has been ordered to stand trial on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the stabbing death of a homeless veteran outside a suburban Philadelphia train station.
The Bucks County Courier Times says a Bucks County judge upheld the charges Monday against Dale Wakefield of Doylestown.
Prosecutors allege that Wakefield stabbed 71-year-old George Mohr at least 70 times with a pocket knife on July 3 outside the Doylestown train station.
They said he had been out celebrating his 21st birthday before the stabbing. Mohr died three days later. Wakefield was later arrested in a Baltimore hotel.
Wakefield's sister testified at Monday's preliminary hearing that her brother "just snapped" when Mohr said something to him after his request for money was rejected.
