A woman who's husband died in a weekend stabbing says she wants to set the record straight about the events leading up to the incident.
37-year-old Doug Harrod was killed at his mother-in-law's home on Georgetown Road in Franklin County Saturday night. Only four people know what led to Harrod's death. His wife, Bobbie Harrod is one of them. She says her husband was at her mother's home fixing a water leak when her mother's roommate, Eugene Biggs became hostile, first toward her mother, then toward her husband. "I laid while my husband died in my arms thanks to him, so my opinion is they've let a murderer walk off free," Bobbie Harrod said.
Doctors treated Eugene Biggs for what investigators describe as minor injuries sustained in the fight with Doug Harrod. Biggs was released Saturday night. The Franklin County sheriff says his department is conducting a death investigation, but currently no charges are pending against Biggs because of the possibility that he acted in self-defense.
Neighbors say Biggs has not returned home since the incident, and Doug Harrod's mother-in-law did not want to appear on camera, but Bobbie Harrod insists her husband did not start the fight. "Eugene Biggs made the first swing at my husband. My husband did hit him with a ball bat in the head, but after that he stabbed my husband in the main artery," Bobbie Harrod said, "I got my husband up and got him outside, and then Eugene Biggs, after my husband falls to the ground, Eugene Biggs kept hollering, 'well I'm glad I stabbed the S.O.B. I'm glad I stabbed him. I'm glad he's dead.'"
Detectives say they're keeping an open mind about all possibilities as their investigation continues.
