PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An Uber Eats bicycle deliveryman accused of fatally stabbing a real estate developer on a Philadelphia street is now eligible for bail after prosecutors amended the charges against him.
The district attorney’s office Wednesday changed the charges against 21-year-old Michael White to third-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter.
Bail was set at $150,000 with a condition of house arrest for White, a former student at Baltimore’s Morgan State University.
Police say White stabbed 37-year-old Sean Schellenger on July 12 about a block from the city’s swanky Rittenhouse Square.
Police say Schellenger was with two other men in a Mercedes and exited the car when it got stuck in traffic. White arrived on his bike and an argument ensued.
A family spokesman says White acted in self-defense because Schellenger – a former Penn State quarterback – tackled him.
