Man Pleads Guilty in Fatal South End Stabbing

Andrew Wyman, of West Roxbury, a U.S. Army veteran was stabbed to death on Sunday morning.

The man charged in the fatal stabbing of a 29-year-old man in the South End two years ago plead guilty to manslaughter charges in court on Tuesday, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office. 

Darryl Mitchell, 26, of Randolph, admitted guilt in court for stabbing Andrew Wyman of West Roxbury on May 15, 2011. Wyman, a U.S. veteran, later died of his stab wounds. Mitchell will serve six to eight years in prision. 

This week’s court proceedings are actually the second trial for Mitchell for the crime. His first trial ended in a hung jury after jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict on the manslaughter charge against him. In that trial, Michell’s co-defendent, Joy Willis, 26, was charged with misleading homicide detectives. 

On the night of May 15, 2011, investigators said the incident began when Wyman’s female companion exchanged words with Mitchell as he drove by the pair on Mass Ave. near Albany Street. When the female relayed the conversation to Wyman, who was several yards behind her, he began a “verbal altercation” with Mitchell, investigators said.  read more
