Military veteran Jimmy Nguyen’s loved ones said he may have been confused when he broke into 64-year-old James Weideman’s Central Lubbock home early Thanksgiving morning.

The 27-year-old was allegedly armed with a knife when, disoriented, he engaged a startled Weideman in a fight.

The two sparred for about 20 minutes before Weideman was able to end the attack, using the knife against Nguyen, who later succumbed to his injuries.

“I finally knew in my heart I only had about one minute of strength left,” Weideman said. “I again prayed and told God, ‘God, I only have one minute. Either I have to go ahead and try to stop him now or he will kill me.’”
