Bride Accused of Stabbing Groom on their Wedding Day
Darcel Franklin stabbed her fiancé Billy Rafeal twice, puncturing his heart, just hours before the wedding, The Morning Call reported.
“I did not mean to kill him on purpose,” Franklin told the judge at her arraignment hearing.
Brewster, 36, was pronounced dead at 3:24 a.m. Saturday. About an hour earlier, police found him bleeding outside the Whitehall Township, Pa., apartment he shared with Franklin, 31.
His cousin’s wife, Monique Kali, told police that the couple got into an argument and somebody yelled “knife!”
She said she went to see what was happening and saw her husband standing between Franklin and Brewster. The bride-to-be was waving a knife around, and Brewster was bleeding from his side.
Fearing that her husband would be stabbed next, Monique Kali said she tackled Franklin and her husband disarmed her. Meanwhile, Brewster staggered outside, still bleeding.
Franklin was arrested and charged with one count of homicide.
The pastor who was supposed to perform the wedding at 10:00 a.m. Saturday showed up at the apartment after not being able to reach the couple, according to the Morning Call.
