John Rooney, 46, of Randolph, Massachusetts, was indicted by a Norfolk County Grand Jury for the stabbing death of 78 year-old Georgios Kontsas, of Stoughton. Along with the charge of Murder, Rooney was also indicted for Armed Home Invasion; Armed Assault in a Dwelling; Armed Assault with Intent to Murder; Armed Assault with Intent to Rob; and Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.
As previously reported in the Boston Criminal Lawyers Blog, Rooney is alleged to have entered the home of Kontsas and his wife and attacked the couple with a knife shortly after 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 27, 2010. Kontsas’ wife, Dorothea, also suffered multiple stab wounds, but ultimately survived her injuries.
Although it is still now known the exact motive for the attack, it has been widely reported that Rooney was involved in some business dealings with the couple’s son.
