23-year-old William Antonio Serrano, of Houston Texas was sentenced to 35 years in prison for stabbing his roommate to death after an argument in their Houston apartment. What were they arguing about? The victim, 21-year-old Noel Quintanilla-Vaquero had confronted his roommate, Serrano, about Serrano's alleged foot odor problem.
Authorities say 21-year-old Noel Quintanilla-Vaquero complained last October that Serrano's feet had a foul odor. They say Serrano responded to the insult by grabbing a knife and stabbing Quintanilla-Vaquero 16 times.
According to news sources, the men had been drinking. Surprise, surprise.
Court documents indicate Serrano initially claimed self-defense. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the self defense argument.
