GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Michigan man arrested in the August stabbing death of a Green Bay man is accused of taking selfie videos and photos of the victim’s body, writing a Bible verse on the victim’s wall and leaving handwritten notes apologies.
Caleb Anderson, 23, of Caspian, Michigan, was charged Thursday in the Aug. 1 stabbing death of Patrick Ernst, 65. Authorities say Anderson then stole Ernst’s car and killed another man in Alabama.
Anderson remains in prison in Alabama, where he pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges in the stabbing death of 52-year-old Dwight Dixon. WLUK-TV reports.
Court documents show Anderson found Ernst through a smartphone app that men use to meet other men for sex. Ernst was the only person who “responded,” Anderson said.
In addition to the Bible verse and note, investigators say they found “disturbing” selfies on a phone Anderson bought in Green Bay.
The medical examiner counted about 50 stab wounds on Ernst’s body, mostly in the head, neck and abdomen.
