PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A restaurant employee accused of stabbing his bosses at a Mount Washington tavern is headed to trial.
Jaymar Gilbert, 40, was held on all charges at a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
Witnesses testified that when they accused Gilbert of stealing $80 in tip money at Bigham Tavern, he turned violent.
He first tussled with the restaurant co-owners. Then, they say he repeatedly stabbed them.
The stabbing happened in the late hours of Oct. 31.
Co-owner Joseph Rewis was hospitalized in serious condition with six or seven stab wounds. The other owner, Brad Yoder, was in critical condition with a wound to the abdomen.
Rewis says they are both recovering.
Gilbert is in the Allegheny County Jail on $50,000 bond.
He’s awaiting trial on four counts of aggravated assault.
