MEDINA, Ohio - The suspect who stabbed a Medina man with a large hunting knife following a night of drinking and playing pool is now in custody and charged with a felony murder charge.
An argument and fight between the suspect, Aaron Andrew Furin, 30, and the victim broke out when someone broke a bottle of liquor, according to a Medina Police Department news release. Both were drinking and playing pool with other people in a detached garage on Longview in Medina.
Furin suffered a bloody nose and allegedly entered the house and grabbed a large hunting knife.
He confronted the victim, who was in the driveway near his vehicle, and stabbed him in the left side of his torso.
The victim drove away in his vehicle, lost control a short distance away, left the road and struck a house.
Officers found him bleeding profusely in his vehicle and tried to control the bleeding. Medina Life Support Team transported him by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he later died Thursday morning.
The Medina County Coroner ruled the victim's death as a homicide from a stab wound to the torso.
Medina County Prosecutor Dean Holman has filed a felony murder charge against Furin.
