Homeless Man Stabbing

A man accused of stabbing a wheelchair-bound homeless man 31 times has been convicted of second-degree murder.

35-year-old Curtis Gordon Adams will be sentenced March 22nd.
He faces 24 to 48 years in prison.

Prosecutors say he stabbed Clyde Ashcraft in August 2004 in front of his former girlfriend to demonstrate his devotion to her.

Investigators say Adams stood outside of his ex-girlfriend's house, minutes before the stabbing and said, "What is about to happen is your fault."

Investigators also say that Adams yelled out to his ex-girlfriend as he was being led away by police, "Dedicated to the one I love. I'd die or kill for you."
