Prosecutors say Fedna and a group of football players were headed to a Halloween party when one of the friends was approached by Murcia and another man in a threatening way. Fedna stepped in to defend the group, but prosecutors say Murcia turned on him with a knife suffering a laceration to his hand that severed a tendon, and a back injury so severe it required three surgeries.READ MORE: Male In Norwood Shot Multiple Times, Taken By MedFlight To Boston Hospital
It was only two days ago that prosecutors say a witness came forward identifying Murcia as the attacker. “Officers utilized the name and obtained a photo array to show to the victim who positively identified the defendant as the one who stabbed him,” said prosecutor Rachel Perlman.MORE NEWS: Jeff Coombs, Abington Man Killed On 9/11, Honored With Final Memorial Road Race
