Man charged in borrowed movies murder

— A man accused of fatally stabbing his cousin during a New Year’s Eve day argument over borrowed action movies has been formally charged with murder.

A Limestone County grand jury recently indicted Kenny Dewayne Adams, 35, of 14916 Chris Way, Lot 6, on the charge, Circuit Court records show.

Adams is accused of stabbing Yancey Metz Foster, 34, in the chest with a pocketknife at Foster’s mobile home at 14580 Chris Way, Lot 6, west of Athens.

Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones said at the time of the murder Adams was intent on retrieving two DVDs he loaned to his cousin.  He went to Foster’s home to get the movies, titled “The Fast and the Furious” and “2 Fast 2 Furious,” when the fight ensued, authorities said.

Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely said Adams told investigators Foster struck and grabbed him, so he stabbed him.

The district attorney said that at some point Foster got Adams in a headlock, so Adams reached into his own pocket, retrieved a pocketknife and stabbed Foster, striking him once in the left chest. Adams then fled the scene heading toward his trailer across the road. Foster telephoned 911 at 2:36 p.m. to report he had been stabbed.

Foster died in an ambulance at the scene.
