Homeless Man Pleads Not Guilty to Murder in Boston Stabbing

Kevin James, aka Kevin Wayne Wilson, 43, a homeless man from Boston, pled not guilty to the charge or Murder yesterday in Boston Municipal Court in connection with an April 30 fight with Beau James Young on Boylston Street near the Prudential Center.

Young, 22 and also homeless, was stabbed in the chest during the fight that occurred around 11:30 in the evening. Although he was taken to a Boston Hospital to be treated, he succumbed to his injuries and died on May 1.

At James’ Murder arraignment, the Suffolk County prosecutor told the Judge that James allegedly admitted to the Boston Police that he fought with Young, but insisted that it was Young who pulled the knife, and that the resulting stabbing was an accident. The Suffolk County prosecutor further reported that there were two witnesses to the murder, and that James allegedly then made an effort to alter his appearance in an effort to avoid capture by the police.
