There have been stories of people who spent time in prison and when they got out did everything that they could to make a better life for themselves. Sadly, this story reflects the opposite. Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel St. Hubert has been arrested a total of nine times. He served two years in a state prison and three years in jail for assault and attempted murder. Even after all of this, he was still granted parole on May 23, 2014. Now he is in prison again for the alleged murder of a six-year-old boy and the attempted murder of a seven-year-old girl.

Prince Joshua Avitto and his friend Mikayla Capers were playing outside at their residence at Boulevard Houses in Brooklyn, NY, when they were cornered by St.Hubert in the elevator. Avitto was later found in the elevator suffering from multiple stαb wounds and Mikayla was found outside. The police stated that the steak knife that was used in the stαbbing was found outdoors.

Forensic evidence lead police to St. Hubert and he was arrested a day later. Prince passed away from his injuries. Mikayla is recovering. Prince is said to be the cousin of Taj Gibson, a power forward for the Chicago Bulls.

Hubert is also under investigation for the stabbing of an 18-year-old woman. She was attacked just four blocks from where the attack on the children was carried out. Police found a similar knife at the scene of the young woman’s stabbing. There is still no motive for St. Hubert’s attacked on the children.

If found guilty of the attacks, St. Hubert will face a much steeper prison sentence than he has in the past.
