ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (KOB) - We are beginning to learn more about Lawrence Capener, the man accused of stabbing four people at a church in Albuquerque on Sunday.

In some ways, he seems like a man suffering from obvious mental issues, but a neighbor says the Lawrence Capener she knew was a nice, normal guy.

"Lawrence has always been very respectful, very helpful. I've never seen him lose his temper," said next door neighbor Mercedes Reynolds.

But parishioners at St. Jude Thaddeus say instead they saw anger and hate in his eyes as he stabbed four people during Sunday mass.

Albuquerque police said he confessed to targeting the choir's director, Adam Alvarez, because the devil sent a message through the microphone every time Alvarez sang.
