Teen charged after local man attacked while trying to break up fight dies
WACO, Texas (KWTX) – A teenager was served Tuesday with a manslaughter warrant stemming from the death of a Waco man who died of a heart attack after he was kicked, beaten and stabbed while trying to break up a fight.
Jason Ivy, 19, was served with the warrant in the McLennan County Jail where he’s been held since the fight in July.
He was charged earlier with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of aggravated assault family violence in connection with the incident.
His bonds now total $125,000.
Officers responded at around 6 p.m. on July 13 to a report that a teenager was attacking “multiple individuals” in a home in the 800 block of North 11th Street in Waco, Officer Garen Bynum said in a press release Tuesday.
As the fight moved into the street Steven Ray Sanders, 43, was called to the home to try to help “gain control” over the teenager, Bynum said.
During a struggle with the teen, Sanders “was punched, kicked, bitten, and was stabbed in the back by a small knife,” Bynum said.
Ivy was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, Bynum said.
Sanders was taken to a local hospital where he died later the same night of a heart attack “caused by the physical stress of the attack,” Bynum said.
