The trouble apparently began around 5 a.m. on Friday when Gelman arrived home “appearing to be drunk or high and demanded use of one of his parents' two cars” according to one neighbor’s report.
When Gelman’s stepfather, 54 year-old Aleksandr Kuznetsov, refused Gelman’s request, a violent argument broke out between the two. Police say Gelman, “grabbed a knife and stabbed his stepfather several times.”
