South Carolina surfer Craig Massey, 20, (pictured above) was stabbed to death on July 2, 2008 in the home of Charles Richard Dobson, Jr.,19. Dobson who is charged with murder and two counts of assault and battery with intent to kill claims he acted in self defense.

“These people broke into my house and assaulted me,” Dobson told Charleston County Magistrate Mary Holmes at his bond hearing Thursday night. . . His attorney, Margie Pizarro, later said that Dobson was at home with his younger brother and another person when several people entered the home. She said they were not guests and were not invited into the residence.

Many people can’t figure out how it could have happened:

“Everyone was completely shocked by what happened,” Nancy Hussey, director of the Eastern Surfing Association, said. “Craig was so friendly and well-mannered. He was a very sweet guy.”

The only connection appears to be a 19-year-old girl named Mary Whilden Hills who both Massey and Dobson reportedly dated. (Hills was wounded in the incident”)

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 2, 2008.
