On the morning of March 6, 1998, 71-year-old Simon Wilford Brown, Jr. arrived at his wholesale grocery supply business in Mocksville, North Carolina. A few minutes later, he struggled with an assailant and suffered a single stab wound to the right side of his chest. The blow punctured his lung. The pathologist could not say whether the wound was inflicted deliberately or accidentally.
Mr. Brown bled from the chest, lost consciousness within moments, and was hospitalized. He remained in a coma. Complications from the wound included pneumonia and organ failure. Nine days after the stabbing, the family decided to remove life support. Mr. Brown died shortly thereafter. In the moments before he lost consciousness, Mr. Brown described the assailant as a “Black guy. … he was in here yesterday. … Dark clothing. I think I cashed his check yesterday. … But, I’m not positive.” He said he did not see the weapon. He said the assailant “come up from behind.” The state’s theory was that Jathiyah Al Bayyinah committed premeditated and deliberate murder and felony murder in the course of attempted robbery.
