A teen was charged in connection with a stabbing attack of two missionaries Sunday after he confessed to the crime, according to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies. This confessing came when the offender appeared in court.
Jeffrey Ferman, 17, made his first court appearance Monday morning where probable cause was determined and Ferman was charged with two counts of burglary with the intent to commit a felony.
The suspect who has confessed is a neighbor to the two Latter-day Saints. It has been revealed that he has been drinking right before the invading, attacking, and stabbing the two missionaries.
The 17-year-old gained access to the sisters’ apartment through the veranda and went to the kitchen for a knife before proceeding to commit the crime.
Ferman is in Harris County jail on a $120,000 bond for the two charges. He is due back in court Tuesday at 9 a.m.
A spokesperson for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints said the women are “OK” and they are keeping the women in their prayers.
