WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A 37-year-old Bridgewater man has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the fatal stabbing of a man in Brockton.
Alfred Giannini was arraigned Friday in his hospital bed at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth where he's being treated after being shot by police in a manhunt following Wednesday's stabbing.
The Brockton Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/17974yh ) that Giannini appeared agitated and tried to talk with court officials near the end of his brief hearing, but was calmed by his attorney.
Prosecutors said Giannini went to a Brockton house at midday on Wednesday and stabbed 44-year-old Jeffrey Cicerano in the torso.
Prosecutors said Giannini stole a relative's car from a nearby house and drove away. Police found him in Abington a few hours later.
