Billings Man Beheaded Over $6
Two men allegedly beheaded a Billings man last month, angry that he was only carrying $6 when they robbed him.
Q2 reports that 31-year-old Donald Cherry and 33-year-old Jeffrey Haverty met the victim, 41-year-old Myron Knight at Montana Lil’s Casino on October 26th. Knight, who was a regular customer, left with the two men at about 10 p.m. He reportedly asked the casino staff to hold onto his winnings, totaling $120, in case the men wanted to rob him. He also reportedly told them that if he did not come back, the men he left with were responsible.
Cherry’s girlfriend told police she was with the three men at the campsite where Knight’s body was found. Haverty reportedly struck Knight in the head with a hammer. They planned to dismember the body and burn it in a fire pit.
