Man stabs college class president while he was sleeping

DELAWARE, Ohio - Police say a 23-year-old man stabbed a central Ohio college class president as he slept in his fraternity house because of a relationship dispute involving a roommate.

Police in Delaware, near Columbus, on Thursday charged 23-year-old Nicholas Corey Lee Eber with stabbing a sleeping Anthony Peddle, 21, last weekend in the victim's bed in the Chi Phi fraternity house at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Peddle, who is recovering, is the college's senior class president and still plans to speak at Sunday's graduation ceremony.

Eber was involved in a long-standing relationship dispute involving Peddle's roommate, according to a police affidavit filed this week.

He was being held in the county jail. No attorney information was available.
