Verbal dispute leads to fatal stabbing In Allegany County Overnight

On 09/28/12, at approximately 12:30 AM, New York State Police in Allegany County responded to a report of a person stabbed on Tuckers Corner Road in the town of Amity. Upon arrival at the scene, SP Amity based Troopers discovered Jason S. Cipriano, 29, laying unresponsive on the shoulder of the road. Mr. Cipriano was pronounced deceased at scene by Allegany County Coroner Ted Crowell.

Investigation conducted by Troop "A" Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) revealed that Jason S. Cipriano and Jason E. Mehmel, 33, got into a verbal argument in the roadway near Cipriano's residence at 5829 Tuckers Corner Road in Amity. This argument lead to a physical altercation, resulting in Mehmel fatally stabbing Cipriano in the upper chest area. Mehmel then fled the scene on foot, but a short time later surrendered himself to Troopers at the SP Amity barracks.

Upon conferring with Allegany County District Attorney Keith Slep, Mehmel was charged with Murder 2nd degree - a Class A-I Felony and Criminal Possession of a Weapon 4th - a Class A Misdemeanor. Mehmel was arraigned in the town of Friendship Court and had been remanded to the Allegany County Jail without bail.

What a terrible senceless tragedy, that has taken a man at such a young age & ruined the other's life at such a young age. What is this world coming to? Happens far to often.

Jason, you always were a good friend and you will be missed deeply. Thanks for all you've done.

I am NOT cheering for the "staber", but the "stabee" and others who confront people must realize that they are putting their life into the hands of the "staber". Sometimes it is best to walk away and seek the help of the authorities.

We must all remember, that save the grace of God, there goes any of us. Anyone can loose their temper, especially under the influence of alcohol & do something horrible. If we think it can't happen to us, or someone we love, we're wrong.
I'm certinly not condoning this tragedy, & senseless killing , but Jason Mehmel turned himself in. He could have done a million other things, but instead he chose to face the consequences of his actions. He will deal with this, for the rest of his life, as will his family members, and he and his family need our prayers, and God's mercy...to get them through the agonizing days ahead...as do the family of the man who was killed. I pray God will have mercy on & help everyone involved. My condolences to the family of the young man who lost his life. It sounds like he lost it trying to be a real friend & that adds to the grief of this situation.
