Daytona Man in Assisted Living Facility Stabs and Chokes Caregiver Over Cable TV
Justina Threadgill, the owner of an assisted living facility in Daytona Beach, Florida, found herself the victim of a vicious, near-fatal attack all because she talked with an accent and refused to fix the cable TV in one of her client's rooms.
49-year-old Thomas Clifton Wilkes now faces charges of attempted murder.
"She's truly devoted to special needs individuals, she's done that for all the years I've known her and even longer," one of Threadgill's friends told MyFoxOrlando .
The caretaker is recovering in a nearby hospital.
Wilkes family says that when he doesn't take his medication he becomes violent. It's not known exactly why Wilkes needed to live in an assisted living facility.
