This a pretty demented story to say the least and what was he going to do with the pacemaker afterwards?  We live in a world with some very strange people out there.  BD 

MANCHESTER, Iowa - Authorities in northeast Iowa say a rural Manchester man has been charged with attempted murder after cutting his father's pacemaker from his chest.
The Delaware County sheriff's office says 32-year-old Jesse Fierstine struck his 63-year-old father, Charles Fierstine, over the head with a flashlight and a piece of firewood on Saturday, then cut the pacemaker from his chest using a pocketknife.
Charles Fierstine was taken to a hospital in Manchester then transported to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. His condition wasn't immediately available on Sunday afternoon.
