Man Pleads Guilty in Fatal South End Stabbing

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.  Mitchell then made a U-turn, driving past Wyman, who began “kicking and punching the car,” the DA’s office said. In response, Mitchell reached out his window, stabbed Wyman in the chest and sped away. Wyman was transported to Boston Medical Center where he was rushed into surgery, and later pronounced dead. Police located Mitchell’s vehicle abadoned near 254 Mass Ave. with a “reddish-brown stain believed to be blood” on the driver’s side door. The vehicle, a white Dodge Dynasty, was used to identify Mitchell, who surrendered to police that week.  In the previous trial, the court decided that Willis, Mitchell’s co-defendant, had lent the vehicle to her then-boyfriend Mitchell, and called police to report the car stolen in an attempt to help Mitchell avoid prosecution. She was sentenced to 2½ years in a house of correction with one year to serve and the balance suspended for a five-year probationary term.

Man Charged in Overpass Stabbing Held Without Bail

The man whom authorities believe fatally stabbed another man in the South End last month was held without bail, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.  Christopher W. Powell, 39, of Everett, was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on Wednesday morning on murder charges for the stabbing death of 44-year-old Corey Thompson, whose body was found under the I-93 overpass in the South End in late February. Assistant district attorney Edmond Zabin, chief of the district attorney’s homicide unit, told the court at Powell’s arraignment that Thompson had been stabbed approximately eight times, including wounds to the torso and two to the chest. A passerby noticed Thompson’s body under the I-93 overpass near Traveler and Albany Streets around 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 25 and called police.  State police detectives were able to link Powell to the scene through video surveillance, witness statements and phyiscal evidence from the scene, the DA’s office said. Powell also allegedly admitted to the crime, according to the DA’s office.  His motive for the stabbing still remains under investigation, said DA spokesperson Jake Wark.  Powell will return to court on April 23.

Woman Charged with Stabbing Man at Mass. Ave Residence

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate a conviction. Boston Police arrested a South End woman for allegedly stabbing a male victim on Saturday night.  Boston Police Officers responded to an assault and battery in progress at 567 Mass. Ave. at about 1 a.m. on February 23. On arrival, officers spoke with the victim who stated that he had had an argument with a woman. The argument turned violent at some point. Officers observed scratch marks on the victim’s face and slash marks on his right arm. The victim stated that the suspect had stabbed him. While one officer spoke with the victim, another was outside of the residence speaking to the suspect.
