Police: Woman Fatally Stabs Father After Dinner Roll Argument

Prosecutors say a woman in a Detroit suburb has been accused of fatally stabbing her father after an argument over a dinner roll.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Wednesday charged
42-year-old Ava Maria Gordon of Melvindale with second-degree murder in the death of Gordon's 62-year-old father.

Police say Gordon told investigators she ate a dinner roll that her father had been saving even though it had a note telling her not to do so.

Prosecutors say Gordon stabbed her father after an argument. Police say she also fired a gun but apparently didn't hit her father.

Prosecutors' spokeswoman Maria Miller says she didn't know if Gordon had retained an attorney.

    We've come along way since "fat-back and biscuit." She'll plead not guilty.

    Want to bet the woman was over 300 pounds? How rediculous it is for life to have become so cheap as to waste it over a dinner roll?
