Renter Kills Landlord With A Samurai Sword


A Connecticut man brutally killed his landlord when confronted over the late payments.

Jerry David Thompson was arrested last week for decapitating his landlord, Victor King, with a samurai sword. Thompson and King were roommates, making their living situation unique to other renters.

It was unclear how late Thompson was with his rent. However, King told police on July 25 that Thompson threatened him with a samurai sword when confronted about the unpaid rent. King was found beheaded in the home the very next day.
