Walmart Remains Open After Man Stabs Wife to Death in the Store

Avery L. Blandin, 46, was arrested and charged with the stabbing death of his wife, Lilia Blandin, 38, who worked in a Woodforest Bank branch inside the Greenville County Walmart in South Carolina.

According to eyewitnesses, Mr. Blandin had a verbal argument with Mrs. Blandin and then he stabbed her repeatedly. A shopper, Phillip Tallent, intervened by hitting Mr. Blandin with a chair.

Blandin then fled the scene and was apprehended after he was involved in an auto accident.

Instead of closing down the store, Walmart managers roped off the area for police investigators and continued normal store operations.
