WINCHESTER -

An Indiana teenager faces felony charges for allegedly stabbing his roommate after the man ate Thanksgiving food the teen's grandmother had sent home with him.

Eighteen-year-old Taz J. Miller was formally charged Thursday with battery with a deadly weapon, criminal recklessness and strangulation.

The Palladium-Item reports that Winchester police were called to Miller's home Sunday after he allegedly confronted one of his roommates for eating his plate of food, stabbing him in the arm and a leg before trying to strangle him. Miller was being held at the Randolph County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Another of Miller's roommates told investigators the victim apologized for eating the food after finding it in their refrigerator, but "Taz became angrier" and retrieved a knife from their kitchen and attacked him.
