Investigators: Man walking dog fatally stabbed at park
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A homeless man is facing murder charges after police say he stabbed without provocation an elderly man walking his dog in a park.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says 41-year-old Evan Freda stabbed 74-year-old Ashley Miller Kraan on Friday afternoon at Willowbranch Park.
The Florida Times-Union reports that Kraan was able to describe his attacker before he died, which led officers to Freda.
Freda’s family told investigators that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.
