Dad stabs his son to death in fight OVER dirty dishes


An Indiana man stabbed his own son in the heart during an argument over dirty dishes in the sink on Friday, June 14, at their home.

Timothy Ray Lisby, 59, now faces an initial charge of aggravated battery and is being held without bond, according to Marion County Jail records.

The case has been turned over to homicide detectives since the battery charge was filed and their investigation is ongoing. 

Jeremiah Green, a family friend who witnessed the grisly death of 31-year-old Christopher Allen Lisby narrated the ‘bickering’ over a pile of dirty dishes.


‘Lisby and his son wrestled each other to the floor inside the mobile home on Dogie Road in Indianapolis. 

Then, the father lashed out with cutlery. 

‘Tim had a spoon in his hand and started stabbing Chris with it,’ Green said. ‘Chris said, ‘’Jeremiah get the spoon out of his hand,’’ so I did.’

Then the father grabbed hold of another weapon, Green said.

‘Tim ran in the kitchen and grabbed something shiny, something sharp … and pushed it into Chris’s chest as hard as he could,’ Green said.

Green then dialed 911, and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers rushed to the scene.


There, they found the son with a ‘bleeding wound to the chest’ in the living room, according to an affidavit filed in the case and obtained by Law & Crime. 

Christopher Lisby was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he stabilized after surgery on his lacerated heart, police said, but succumbed to his injuries the next day.
