An Indiana man woke up to find another man having sex with his wife, so he began stabbing him repeatedly, police say.
Michael Neil, 29, was arrested and charged with felony aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Elwood Police were called to an apartment building just before 12:30 a.m. Monday after a neighbor reported “multiple subjects” were fighting inside one of the units, according to WXIN.
Officers arriving on the scene discovered two men, one of whom was sitting inside a parked vehicle outside the building suffering from stab wounds and the other who was inside the apartment covered in blood. Neil allegedly claimed he had been attacked in his apartment at the time.
Both men were taken to the hospital and treated. However, after conducting a series of interviews and issuing a search warrant for the victim’s car and the apartment, police arrested Neil. Officers also collected DNA evidence from the scene.
Neil allegedly told them he had taken a knife from his bedroom and stabbed the victim after catching him having sex with his wife.
Elwood Police Chief Jason Brizendine declined to provide specifics about the extent of the injuries the unidentified victim suffered, according to The New York Daily News.
The investigation is still ongoing, WDRB reports.
Neil, whose listed alias is “Lil Mike,” has been taken to the Madison County jail, according to jail records. It is not his first run-in with the law. In January 2018, he was arrested on robbery, battery and drug charges. He also has past arrests for theft, possession of a controlled substance and offenses relating to registration labeling and prescription forms.
