ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A grand jury on Tuesday raised the stakes for Lawrence Capener, the man accused of going on a stabbing spree at an Albuquerque church.
Capener, 24, now faces a charge of attempted murder on top of the three counts of aggravated battery filed earlier. The grand jury also added a charge of aggravated assault.
On April 28 witnesses saw Capener jump over several pews at St. Judge Thaddeus Roman Catholic Church and go straight for the choir director stabbing him several times.
Two other people trying to stop the attack were also stabbed, and a fourth person injured.
Capener told police he targeted the choir director because he thought he was part of a conspiracy involving Freemasons.
