Police: Manchester man stabbed elderly roommate in dispute over TV volume

MANCHESTER - A man stabbed his 81-year-old roommate in the chest during an argument over the volume on the television, police said.

Dennis Fancy, 63, of 42 Union St. is under arrest, charged with first-degree assault in the incident that happened just before midnight Thursday.

Maurice Nicolas, 81, was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for a serious injury but one that does not appear to be life-threatening, according to a press release.

Officers went to the Union Street address at 11:50 p.m. Thursday for a reported stabbing, and were met at the door by Nicolas who was holding a bloody cloth to his chest.

He told police Fancy, who was in a rear bedroom, stabbed him.

Nicolas told police they were arguing over the volume on the TV and Fancy grabbed a knife and stabbed him once in the chest.

Fancy will be arraigned Friday morning in 9th Circuit Court-District Division-Manchester.
