(Florence, Alabama) A 20-year-old local female, Tiffany Marie Nunley, has been accused of murdering a 50-year-old, wheelchair-bound man.
Reportedly, Nunley stabbed David Lynn Pennington more than 70 times.
Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Travis Clemmons said a knife authorities believe was used to kill Pennington was found inside the house. The knife, which is described as resembling a filet knife, was 8-10 inches long.Nunley was booked in to custody with bail set at $100,000.
Clemmons said Monday that investigators believe Pennington was stabbed while sitting in a recliner and then fell onto the floor where he was stabbed more times. Investigators said the man’s wheelchair was found in front of the recliner.
“At this point, we have no reason to believe that anyone was with Tiffany inside the house when the stabbing took place,” Clemmons said.
Investigators say robbery appears to be the motive in the stabbing. Family members said his wallet, money, prescription drugs and home telephone were taken from the residence at the time of his death.
