Father Fatally Stabs Son During Argument Over Dirty Plates


According to police, an Indiana man fatally stabbed his own son in the heart during an argument over dirty dishes in the sink.

Timothy Ray Lisby, 59, is facing an initial charge of aggravated battery and is currently being held without bond, as per Marion County Jail records.

However, a family friend who witnessed the tragic death of 31-year-old Christopher Allen Lisby on June 14 believes that the father should be charged with murder, he informed Fox 59.

The case has been handed over to homicide detectives following the filing of the battery charge, and their investigation is ongoing.

Jeremiah Green recounted to the outlet that after arguing over a pile of dirty dishes, Lisby and his son engaged in a physical altercation that led them to wrestle each other to the floor inside their mobile home on Dogie Road in Indianapolis.

“Tim had a spoon in his hand and started stabbing Chris with it,” Green told the outlet. “Chris said, ‘Jeremiah get the spoon out of his hand,’ so I did. Tim ran in the kitchen and grabbed something shiny, something sharp … and thrusted it into Chris’s chest as hard as he could.”

“He was putting pressure on Chris and saying, ‘Don’t die. Don’t die,'” Green told Fox 59. “Since that day I’ve been crying, and I can’t sleep.”

Green said he will testify against Lisby in court, and that he will do whatever is necessary to “put him down.” 

“Chris was my friend. I loved him to death,” Green said. “I’ve never seen anyone bleed that bad and that really hurt me. When he stabbed Chris in the heart, it’s like he stabbed mine. He killed the only friend I have in the world. He’s gonna pay for what he did.”

The surviving Lisby is next due in court on June 21, according to online jail records.
