LYNN, Mass. (AP) — Prosecutors say a dispute over a pair of child's sneakers led to a fight that ended in a fatal stabbing in Lynn.
Isaac Hendricks was held without bail after a not guilty plea to a murder charge was entered on his behalf at his arraignment Monday.
Authorities say Hendricks killed Jonathan Laporte on Sunday morning after Hendricks' wife and Laporte's girlfriend got into a fight over the girl's Air Jordans.
Hendricks' wife, Shanequa, tells The Daily Item (http://bit.ly/1hBKP8b ) that Laporte's girlfriend, Kyesha Torres, gave their daughter the sneakers as a gift, then demanded them back. Torres told police she only allowed the Hendrickses to borrow the sneakers.
Isaac Hendricks' lawyer says his client was protecting his home and family and it was a clear case of self-defense.
Torres was also charged.
