Dale Wakefield, the man charged with fatally stabbing a homeless man in Doylestown Borough, is headed to trial on charges of first-degree murder.
Wakefield, 21, had his preliminary hearing Monday in front of District Judge Mark Douple. He is being held at Bucks County Prison without bail.
Wakefield was reportedly out celebrating his 21st birthday before allegedly attacking George Mohr on July 3. Mohr passed away three days later at Temple University Hospital as a result of his wounds.
The Intelligencer reported that Wakefield’s sister, Wendy Wakefield, testified during Monday’s hearing. She said Mohr asked her brother for money and he “snapped,” according to the publication.
Mohr, 71, was found by a passing motorist, who called Borough Police to report that a struck pedestrian was lying in the street. When police arrived, they found the injured man and discovered the stab wounds.
Mohr was initially taken to Doylestown Hospital but was later transported to Temple University Hospital.
He died from his wounds three days later at the Philadelphia hospital.
