Swordfights Are Back

Man Dies Days After Swordfight That Killed Woman - Indiana News Story - WRTV Indianapolis: "INDIANAPOLIS -- A man died Monday, days after he was involved in a swordfight with the grandson of a woman who was killed when she tried to intervene in the fight, police said.

Adolf Stegbauer, 69, died from complications of a stab wound. Charges pending against Chris Rondeau, 39, were expected to be upgraded. Police said he stabbed Stegbauer.

Franziska Stegbauer, 77, also died as a result of stab wounds after the fight early Thursday morning, but police were not initially sure which of the men had stabbed her."


  1. The sad part is that during the fight, one of the combatants was heard to say, "You've come to Nottingham Castle once too often, Robin Hood."

  2. At least he didn't say, "There can be only one!"

  3. The Scarlet Pumpernickle!
