Issaiah Clachar, just 17, used to tell his mother he’d go far in life, and well beyond his family apartment on Jasmine Crescent . But, in the end, he was killed just steps from his building after stealing a lousy bag of weed.

Connor Stevenson, just 18 and unarmed, was knifed to death in the stairwell of his Jasmine Crescent apartment building over 14 lousy grams of weed. It was April 14, 2015 — a Tuesday afternoon — and he had been stabbed in the heart and left to die alone after a drug robbery gone wrong.

Issaiah Clachar, just 17, used to tell his mother he’d go far in life, and well beyond his family apartment on Jasmine Crescent.

But, in the end, he was killed just steps from his building after stealing a lousy bag of weed.

Clachar was knifed eight times — four to the chest, two to the back, one to his left forearm and another to his right thigh — hours after he stole another man’s weed on Sept. 20, 2015. He justified the drug robbery to friends, saying teen dealer Keanu Croteau had short-changed him in the past and once sold him crummy weed.

Judge tosses lawsuit by Jared Fogle's ex-wife against Subway

  Judge tosses lawsuit by Jared Fogle's ex-wife against Subway LEBANON, Ind. - An Indiana judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle's ex-wife, which alleged that the fast-food chain continued promoting Fogle as its spokesman even though it knew of his sexual interest in children. Boone County Judge Matthew Kincaid dismissed Kathleen McLaughlin's suit Tuesday, citing a "lack of personal jurisdiction." His order states that each of the Subway entities she had sued have principal business operations outside Indiana and were formed in Connecticut and Florida.The judge heard arguments last month in Subway's bid to have the suit dismissed.

Michael Alig, whose elaborately planned parties once drew thousands of young people to Manhattan night spots, pleads guilty to killing and dismembering Andre Melendez; Robert Riggs pleads guilty to manslaughter (M).

It was Croteau’s girlfriend who delivered the weed — just over five ounces — to Clachar, with him refusing to pay and telling her to scram. “Whatever happens, it’s on you,” she said as she left.

Croteau, then 18, and Mohamad Hamade, then 25, pulled into Jasmine Crescent in a black Acura, looking for a settling of accounts. It was young Clachar who reached for his pellet gun from inside his gold Nissan before the confrontation spiralled.

The Jasmine Crescent killers took turns knifing Clachar to death before running off into the night, only to be caught by police in the tall grass by Highway 174 and the Pineview Golf Course. They were both covered in their victim’s blood, and later charged with second degree murder.

On Thursday, two years later, the killers finally took responsibility and pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter. The plea deal will spare the victim’s family a trial and may afford the killers more lenient sentences. 

Three youths found guilty in 2015 Luka Gordic killing

  Three youths found guilty in 2015 Luka Gordic killing Clara Gordic says her son Luka’s 2015 murder in Whistler was over “nonsense” and never should have happened.

Jasmine Crescent stairwell killer pleads guilty to manslaughter David Dubois pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter in Connor Stevenson's stabbing death and was sentenced to eight years in prison .(ottawacitizen).

Originally charged with second-degree murder, Gafatasi Napoleon, 30, of Kailua-Kona, pleaded guilty to manslaughter before 3rd Circuit Chief Judge Ronald Ibarra for the death of Alanaokala Solomon Covington.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Kevin Phillips ordered pre-sentence reports on Thursday while the killers sat statue-still in the prisoner’s box.

Clachar’s family has described him as a soft-spoken, harmless boy, but on the night he was stabbed to death, he was the one reaching for a pellet gun, the one he used to shoot Hamade between the eyes. It was only a pellet and he required only one stitch, but that pellet gun looked like a real gun, according to an agreed statement of facts read in court on Thursday. 

A police search of the victim’s Nissan turned up three knives and a pair of brass knuckles. The victim, unlike his killers, didn’t pull a knife in the fight outside the Jasmine Crescent apartment building. 

The young killers, for unknown reasons, abandoned their car at the scene and ran only to be tracked down by K-9 officer Copper. The police case against Croteau and Hamade was steeped in DNA. The victim’s blood was found throughout the killers’ car. 

Before Clachar got caught up in the drug robbery gone wrong, he played football and ran track in high school. Croteau didn’t have a criminal record until Thursday.

Croteau and Hamade are expected to be sentenced later this year.
