The Manchester man who was at the center of a bizarre attack last spring has died. Sixty-four-year Charles Fierstine Junior died Monday at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa city after a lengthy illness. He had a history of heart problems.
Feirstine’s name was thrown into the headlines last spring after his pacemaker was allegedly cut from his chest with a pocket knife by his 32-year-old son Jesse Feirstine. Charles was hospitalized, but recovered from the attack. Jesse’s attempted murder trial is set to begin August fourth.
