Timothy Parsons, a prisoner from West Virginia, has been charged with killing fellow prisoner Eugene Anderson by stabbing him with a makeshift knife 20 times. It was in response to Anderson allegedly trying to get another prisoner to harm Parsons — kill or be killed, I guess.
But what set this all in motion? The Bible, naturally.
Prosecutors say Parsons defeated Anderson in a game of Bible knowledge at the Mount Olive Correctional Institute.
After the game, authorities say Anderson tried to set up a prison hit on Parsons. But prosecutors say Parsons stabbed Anderson 20 times.
I guess they replaced “Love thy neighbor” with “You killed my Father. Prepare to die.”
