    MI - Man charged in Amtrak stabbing

    Amtrak Stabbing: Man Charged With Intent to Murder After Attacking 4

    A man who stabbed four people on an Amtrak train in Michigan, including a conductor, was apprehended Friday night, police said. Michael Darnell Williams, 44, was charged with four counts of assault and intent to murder, Niles Police Chief Jim Millin told NBC News.

    The suspect first boarded the train in Chicago. Michigan police responded to a call from Amtrak Chicago around 7 p.m. advising they had a man on the train who was "talking to himself, acting strangely and acting agitated," Millin said in a news conference Friday. When police arrived at the train when it was stopped near Niles, north of South Bend, Indiana, the knife attack was already taking place. Officers rushed onto the train and shot the suspect with a Taser before arresting him...

    Man charged with attempted murder in Amtrak attack

    Mark Hicks, The Detroit News 12:24 p.m. EST December 6, 2014

    Police say a man accused of stabbing an Amtrak conductor and three train passengers in southwestern Michigan has been charged with four counts of attempted murder.

    Niles Police Chief Jim Millin identified the man as 44-year-old Michael Williams of Saginaw. It wasn't immediately known when he'll appear in Berrien County court.

    Williams was arrested Friday evening after the four people were stabbed on an Amtrak train near Niles, police said...

    Documents show that a Michigan man charged with stabbing four people aboard an Amtrak train had delusions at one time and spent time in jail for attacking a girlfriend, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

    Michael D. Williams’ family also had petitioned a Saginaw court to get him mental health treatment when his behavior became erratic several years after his 2001 administrative discharge from the Army...

    Williams, 44, was charged with four counts of assault with intent to murder and was ordered to undergo a mental competency exam.
    The 911 tapes were released:

    “He is like killing people. I mean it's bad,” said another caller. The whole ordeal seems like it was ripped from a Hollywood horror script.

    “I'm bleeding bad and there's other people worse,” said a victim.

    While those victims were carted off by ambulances, police used a taser gun to stop Williams from his rage.

    “He's on the floor, being subdued by patrol,” said a caller.

    A Saginaw man accused of stabbing four people on an Amtrak train in Niles in December has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.

    Michael Darnell Williams, 44, will now receive treatment for mental health issues and will be reassessed periodically to determine if he is mentally competent to face trial, according to the Berrien County Prosecutor's Office...

    Williams was ordered to be hospitalized and treated for his psychiatric problems at the Center for Forensic Psychiatry.
