A Chandler vampire-wannabe was sentenced Monday to three years probation for getting mad and stabbing his friend in the arm after he wouldn't let him suck his blood a second time.

Aaron Homer, 24, was sentenced by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Warren Granville on one count of aggravated assault stemming from the October incident, according to county court records.

Homer stabbed Robert Maley, 25, also of Chandler, on Oct. 4, after Maley denied Homer to drink from him a second time, according to police.

Sucking blood was a routine thing for Homer, who also was into paganism, according to police.

Homer's roommate, Amanda Williamson, 21, who had spread fake blood on the floor as part of the ritual, also was arrested on suspicion of false reporting to law enforcement in connection with the incident. Police responded to the Tuscany at Chandler Apartments in the 600 block of North Alma School Road that evening after the fire department had responded to a call for service to treat someone. As they were working, fire crews heard what they thought was a gunshot and called police. When police arrived, they found the apartment covered in blood, a trail of which led them to Maley, 25, who was bleeding heavily from his arm.

"I said no, and he flipped," Maley told police of Homer. "He said, ‘I'm doing it,' and then boom ... he stabbed me."

Homer admitted to stabbing Maley because he was making fun of him and Williamson and their religion, according to a court document.

Police said they found the knife Homer used to stab Maley under a mattress at the apartment.
