LR's 4th homicide of 2012: Motel stabbing

Posted By on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 9:42 AM

Fox 16 has a report on the city's fourth homicide of the year — a fatal stabbing at a motel in what's been described as a "domestic incident." The victim was identified as George D. Johnson, 48, who listed a room in the motel as his address.

The stabbing was about 11:30 p.m. last night at a residence motel at 600 Hardin Road, just off Financial Center Parkway. Police said Steve Witzke, 34, another motel resident, was arrested on a first-degree murder charge. Police said Witzke called the police and told them he'd stabbed Johnson.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
