GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (AP) - A handyman has been charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of a wealthy interior designer in suburban Detroit.

Police say 49-year-old David Corzilius of Warren has admitted a role in the stabbing in Grosse Pointe Farms but claims he was upset because the victim, Daniel Clancy, had touched his buttocks the previous day.

Corzilius told police that he had shoveled snow for Clancy last Saturday, a day before the stabbing.

The 69-year-old Clancy remains in critical condition. Corzilius is charged with attempted murder, armed robbery and home invasion. Bond was set Friday at $1 million.

Lt. Richard Rosati says Corzilius returned to Clancy’s house to “settle the score.”

Defense attorney Tim Doty says Corzilius has a history of drug problems and mental health issues.
