Trial is scheduled in Oakland County Circuit Court for a man accused of killing his stepfather while fighting over video gaming.
Jury selection is expected to begin Oct. 3 for the case against Christopher McKinney, 30, charged with open murder, assault with intent to murder and two counts of assaulting an officer for the Dec. 11, 2020 incident at his parents’ home in Madison Heights. The charges stem from an altercation McKinney allegedly had with his stepfather, Raymond Mancini, 71, and his mother. According to police, a fight broke out after McKinney was told to leave his parents’ bedroom where he was playing video games, so they could go to sleep.
After McKinney struck them both, Mancini tried to use a knife to defend himself. McKinney got hold of the knife and stabbed the couple, police said.
Mancini died four days later.
McKinney’s trial had been planned for May 12 but was rescheduled. Judge Cheryl Matthews will preside.
