Delivery Man Murder Follow-up
Court testimony painted this picture of the crime: In the early morning of Oct. 4, 2009, Jaimie lay asleep with her mother in the same bed as Spader entered the secluded home, which he chose at random, intent on killing the occupants and stealing their valuables. Three other intruders with him were armed with knives.
Once inside, two coconspirators said, Spader and Christopher Gribble, also of Brookline, N.H., walked into the master bedroom, using the light from an iPod that Spader had taken from Jaimie’s bedroom.
Kimberly stirred and asked: “Jaimie, is that you? Who’s there?’’
She reached for the light, but the power had been turned off. Spader and Gribble, now on either side of the bed, began to hack, slash, and stab the pair. Jaimie cried out: “You don’t have to do this! Please! Stop!’’
Kimberly warned her daughter and pleaded with her assailants. “Jaimie, run!’’ she said. “Please don’t do it! No, please, no!’’
In what might have been her final words, Kimberly called to her daughter: “It’s OK; everything will be OK.’’
Kimberly, who had been hacked and stabbed 32 times, apparently died after Gribble used his knife to cut her throat, according to testimony. Jaimie, who had jumped from the bed and lay crumpled against a sliding-glass door, pretended to be dead. She suffered 18 wounds and a final blow to the head from Spader’s machete.
An Everett man was arraigned yesterday in Malden District Court on charges in a fatal stabbing outside an Everett pizzeria late Sunday night, according to the Middlesex district attorney’s office. Jamar Leaston, 20, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and assault and battery, said Cara O’Brien, spokeswoman for the district attorney.
Leaston allegedly fought with Nicholas Mackay, 29, of Everett outside Nana’s Pizzeria on Main Street just before 10 p.m. Sunday. Police found Mackay suffering from stab wounds and transported him to Whidden Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Leaston is being held without bail and will return to court Dec. 13.
Quincy man claimed self-defense yesterday in the stabbing Monday of a motorist who was angry at him for blocking traffic during an episode of road rage that virtually froze traffic on Morrissey Boulevard for hours at the height of the evening commute.
Tweet 1 person Tweeted thisYahoo! Buzz ShareThis Colum Flaherty, 62, said through his lawyer that he was trying to fend off a physical assault by a man who complained that Flaherty was blocking traffic after he was involved in a car accident.
The man then started screaming and punching at Flaherty, he said.
“He was scared to death,’’ said Flaherty’s court-appointed lawyer, Jose Vincenty.
“He seemed like a decent man who was involved in a minor accident and road rage got in the way.’’
Flaherty, a burly man who is on disability after undergoing heart surgery recently, his lawyer said, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Dorchester District Court to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. With his wife of 26 years in court with him, he was released on $500 cash bail. The case was continued to Jan. 5.
The other driver and the alleged stabbing victim, Michael McDevitt, 54, also of Quincy, was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date on charges of assault, assault and battery on a person over 60, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and disorderly conduct.
