Teen allegedly stabbed man who ate his food

WINCHESTER, Ind. — An Indiana teenager faces felony charges for allegedly stabbing his roommate after the man ate Thanksgiving food the teen's grandmother had sent home with him.

Eighteen-year-old Taz J. Miller was formally charged Thursday with battery with a deadly weapon, criminal recklessness and strangulation.

The Palladium-Item reports ( ) that Winchester police were called to Miller's home Sunday after he allegedly confronted one of his roommates for eating his plate of food, stabbing him in the arm and a leg before trying to strangle him. Miller was being held at the Randolph County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Another of Miller's roommates told investigators the victim apologized for eating the food after finding it in their refrigerator, but "Taz became angrier" and retrieved a knife from their kitchen and attacked him.
