A young Nigerian man supposedly stabbed a 62-year-old wheelchair-bound woman more than 100 times, leaving her partially disemboweled. The deadly attack occurred in the US, near 5th Avenue and Clark Avenue in South Milwaukee.
The attacker whose name is 31 year old Kehinde Afolayan, was on Tuesday charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide in connection with the Friday attack. If sentenced of the felony charge, he faces up to life in prison.
According to the charging document it says a witness peered through a window of the apartment on Clarke Avenue after being alerted by his sister to a commotion inside and saw Afolayan stab Deborah Lynch as she sat in her wheelchair, reponding officers found Lynch sitting motionless in her wheelchair, breathing but unresponsive. A Flight for Life helicopter was called but Lynch passed away before being loaded onto the aircraft, the complaint said.
Nearby officers arrested Afolayan at the apartment after finding him holding a blood-covered undershirt. Investigators said they found three bloody knives in and near the building, one of which was missing the blade. Police said they were unable to interview Afolayan because he was not communicative, not even providing his name. He was, however, uttering statements such as:
“Jesus forgives me.”
According to Lynch’s son, who also lived in the apartment, told officers that Afolayan had been living with them since October. A medical examiner said Lynch received 116 stabs wounds, most of which were to the chest and abdomen of the victim.
