A Florida man discovered driving around Delray Beach while covered in blood allegedly confessed to stabbing his own father to death in a dispute.
Jared Charles Noiman, 26, is accused of fatally stabbing his father Jay Noiman, 59, in what police described as a “domestic-related” incident, according to local newspaper the Florida Sun-Sentinel. Delray Beach police say Noiman was pulled over around 3:30 a.m. Monday for driving without headlights – only to find him apparently covered in blood.
When police asked Noiman why he was covered in blood, he replied that he had been in a fight in Boca Raton but didn't want to report a crime. He was released with a traffic ticket for having an expired driver’s license, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Jay Noiman's body was discovered around 7:30 a.m. Monday at a Boca Raton parking garage. Surveillance video reviewed by officials allegedly recorded a figure skulking around the crime scene around 2:30 a.m. Monday.
Delray Beach police informed Boca Raton police about their encounter with Noiman and officers later questioned him Monday evening. He was arrested and booked for allegedly driving without a license, but police were unable to charge him with the killing at the time due to a lack of probable cause, local television station WPTV reported.
On Tuesday morning, officers said Noiman turned himself in and confessed to killing his father.
Noiman told police that he had been living with his father in his father's car, but didn't like the way his father had been treating him and had thoughts of killing him, according to investigators.
Noiman has been charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail. He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning his hearing had to be rescheduled after he allegedly refused to appear, according to WPTV.
Officers said that Noiman has a history of mental illness and making violent threats to the community, and was previously charged with posting a number of threatening Facebook messages about wanting to shoot Boca Raton residents, the Palm Beach Post reported last year.
“You’re all just lucky I can’t afford a gun. ... You’re all so (expletive) lucky too that I’m a felon and can’t legally purchase one," Noiman wrote in one of his Facebook posts in October, according to the Palm Beach Post. Florida state records show that Noiman spent about a year in prison and was released in January of last year.
