Roomate Killed over “Stinky Feet”
A Texas man is accused of stabbing his roommate to death because the man complained about his “stinky feet,” local media reports.
The two men rented a small bedroom in a Houston apartment from a married couple with a baby.
The mother and child were sitting outside Saturday evening when the men started drinking in their room, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.
They started fighting about the man’s “stinky feet” and the woman peered into the room to see one of the men holding a knife in his hands, said Sgt. M. Sosa of the homicide squad.
“By the time she got inside, he was on top of the other man,” he told the paper.
The women fled and called for help, and then the roommate “comes after her and says, ‘I didn’t mean to do it, I didn’t mean to do it,'” Sosa said.
William Antonio Serrano, 22, was charged with murder.
The victim’s identity was not released. He was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple stab wounds.
