RICHLAND TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A Richland Township man accused of stabbing his grandmother to death while she was eating breakfast is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
Levi Staver, 26, is facing criminal homicide charges after police said he killed his grandmother at their Gibsonia Road home Tuesday.
Staver told police that he stabbed his grandmother, Constance Johnston, 76, because he was told to do so by an "arch angel."
According to the criminal complaint, Staver told police that "he was in his bedroom on the computer when the 'arch angel' directed him to kill the witch."
The criminal complaint went on to quote Staver as saying, "if the arch angel wants me to do something I just do it."
Richland Township residents said Johnston was well-known in the local church community because her husband was a retired minister.
