Prosecutors said White went into the home of an 84-year-old woman intending to burglarize it. The woman and an 84-year-old man returned home while he was still there. White, prosecutors said, shoved the woman to the ground and stabbed the man. He then demanded money, bound the couple in an upstairs bedroom and took jewelry from the home. Prosecutors said White forced the woman to drive him to the Braddock Road Metro station so he could escape. The man was seriously wounded but survived.
