Roanoke man defends murder charges by saying the victim gave his friend a wedgie

According to this report ("'Wedgie' led to death near sports bar, lawyers say," 5/25/04) in the Roanoke paper, a murder defendant claims that his actions were in self-defense. The paper says:

"What started with a "wedgie" inside a Southwest Roanoke sports bar ended with a disembowelment and fatal neck wound in a dark field beyond.

Jonathan Freel, 35, among a group of men horsing around at the All Sports Cafe on Grandin Road, died in the early April 5, 2003, stabbing. Michael Keith Williams, offended when Freel wedgied a friend of his, was charged with murder."
