Michigan Woman Accused of Stabbing Father Over Dinner Roll

Prosecutors say a woman in a Detroit suburb has been accused of fatally stabbing her father after an argument over a dinner roll.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Wednesday charged 42-year-old Ava Maria Gordon of Melvindale with second-degree murder in the death of Gordon's 62-year-old father.

Police say Gordon told investigators she ate a dinner roll that her father had been saving even though it had a note telling her not to do so. Prosecutors say Gordon stabbed her father after an argument.

Police say she also fired a gun but apparently didn't hit her father.

Prosecutors' spokeswoman Maria Miller says she didn't know if Gordon had retained an attorney.
