Teen murder defendant admits to stabbing

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

HAMILTON, OH ( FOX19) - For the first time the jury heard from Khrendon Gray himself Wednesday, the teen defendant taking the stand in his own defense in his murder trial for the stabbing death of Amber Robinson in September.

Gray testified to being beat up in a big brawl with more than 20 people swarming about shortly before Amber Robinson was stabbed.

"They started kicking us, well I reached for that knife, and I started swinging," Gray said.

Gray says three knives fell out of somone's backpack, that's when he said he picked up a kitchen knife and started swinging to defend himself.

"I just started swinging for my life because it was too many of them," Gray said.

Gray admitted to stabbing someone, while trying to fend for himself in chaos, but says he didn't know it was Amber, and thought it was his friend.

"I had felt something, a pressure point on the knife, and I looked and there was blood," Gray said.

 But, a Det. from the West Chester Police Department testified that Gray didn't say he stabbed anyone when he was questioned .

 "Did he say anything at all about accidentally stabbing anybody?," asked the Prosecution.

 "No he did not," said the detective. 

Amber's family was emotional during closing arguments as prosecutors displayed the shoes she was wearing that night, they also showed a picture of her wounded heart, where it was punctured after the stabbing.

"He stabs her, he kills her," said Assistant Prosecutor Lance Salyers.

The jury returns at 10am Thursday to start deliberations.
