Suspect in York Twp. fatal stabbing apologizes: 'I just snapped'

One of the men charged with a deadly stabbing inside a York township house apologized in court Friday - he said he "just snapped."

Prosecutors say Joseph Hall and Jesse Spurlock stabbed five people and killed two, including a 12-year-old Timber Brown and his half-brother Jonathon Brown, dead.

Timber's mother Vicki Moore remains in the hospital after being cut 14 times. Two other people in the home were also stabbed.

 Joseph Hall, 25, of Dundee, faces several charges including murder and intent to commit murder after a home invasion in the 9700 block of Crane Road Saturday. More on the motive is expected to come out in court.

Family members held onto each other during Friday's arraignment that included an apology from Hall who was apparently injured during his capture.

 Hall spoke up in court offering an apology.

"I'm sorry from the depths of my heart," Hall said. "I can't take it back but in a heartbeat I would trade places and lives with any of those people. I don't know what happened. I just snapped and I am sorry." 

District Court Judge Cedric Simpson also charged 33-year-old Jesse Spurlock of Monroe in connection to the crime. 

Family members had previously said Moore had arranged for her son and his half-brother to stay at the home after a cancelled camp-out at the Michigan International Speedway. 

FOX 2 is told Moore remains on a ventilator and is sedated. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for her mounting medical bills. 

The homeowner and a friend of Moore have since released from the hospital.

Simpson asked Spurlock if he wanted to speak in court.

"Not at the moment your honor," he said.

The suspects will return to court on July 2. The judge denied their bond.
