Criminal cases have often involved a modern problem for killers: the ability of pacemakers to keep victims alive. In Manchester, Iowa, Jesse Fierstine, 32, seems to have realized this when he allegedly beat his sixty-three year old father with a flashlight and firewood — and then cut out Charles Fierstine’s pacemaker out of his chest with a pocketknife.
He is facing a well-deserved attempted murder charge. It is fairly strong evidence of an intent to cause death when you try to dig a pacemaker out of the chest of your dad with a pocket knife.
In past cases, pacemakers have foiled criminals, here. In other cases, it has been used to supply critical evidence against a killer, here.

Attempted Murder was all they have on this thing. WOW. Iowa does not have the Death Penalty.
