Greenwood Man Arrested for Stabbing His Parents

Posted: Updated:

GREENWOOD, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a Greenwood man after police say he stabbed his parents in the home where all three reside.

According to police, at approximately 9 a.m. Sunday, 51-year-old Ricky A. Brewington used a butcher knife to stab his 80-year-old mother and 82-year-old father in the kitchen of their home in the 100 block of Broad Street in Greenwood. Police said that after the stabbing, the victims drove to the Greenwood Fire Department to obtain medical care, and Brewington called 911 from the home to report what had just occurred.

Troopers said a Greenwood police officer arrived at the home and took Brewington into custody without incident. The victims were transported by ambulance from the fire station to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford, where they were both admitted in stable condition with multiple stab wounds.

Brewington was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He is being held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $150,000 cash bail.
