Man charged in knifings at moonshine victim's wake

Headline Legal News Posted on

A parolee has been ordered to stand trial on charges of stabbing two men at a funeral wake for a man poisoned by moonshine.

Dennis Jerome Foust of Montague faces trial in Oceana County Circuit Court on two counts of felonious assault and a misdemeanor count of domestic violence. The 33-year-old also is charged as a habitual offender, which could result in a longer prison sentence if he is convicted.

Police say Foust and his wife fought Jan. 9 during the wake for Shawn Davila, who died on New Year's Day from methanol alcohol poisoning.

Two men were stabbed after intervening in the fight. They were treated and released.
