A Wilmington man was found guilty but mentally ill after stabbing a Good Samaritan to death in Rodney Square two years ago.
A Superior Court jury convicted Calvin Hooker, 26, on charges of Murder Second Degree, Aggravated Menacing and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Hooker killed 27-year-old Thomas Cottingham in September 2015.
At the time, Hooker was waving a knife and chasing a woman pushing her 6-month-old baby in a stroller. Cottingham stepped in and was trying to protect the mother and her baby when he was stabbed.
Hooker was also found guilty on other charges including possession of a deadly weapon and resisting arrest. He faces 21 years to life in prison when sentenced later this year.
