LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla. — An arrest report says a South Florida teenager is accused of stabbing a 62-year-old neighbor more than 60 times over $5.
The Broward Sheriff's Office released the report Tuesday saying the 16-year-old had entered Vibbins Williams' apartment Saturday night in Lauderdale Lakes and asked her for $5 so he could buy marijuana. Williams refused and told him to leave.
The police report says the teen then grabbed a knife from his pocket and stabbed her. He also stole $34 from her purse.
Williams was barely alive when she was discovered by her granddaughter. She was transported to a local hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.
The teen was charged with first-degree murder and taken to the juvenile assessment center. He's not being identified because of his age.
