Kendall Scheid Killed College Roommate Over Fast Food

A drunken argument between two roommates over a meal from Arby's quickly escalated into murder, as a University of Akron student, 23-year-old Duncan Unternaher, was killed in the fight.

Kendall Scheid -- Unternaher's roommate and fraternity brother -- allegedly stabbed him in the chest at 12:30 am on Saturday, DailyMail.com reports.

They had just returned home to their off-campus apartment after a late-night fast food run.

It's been reported their third roommate called 911 after discovering that Scheid, 22, stabbed Unternaher over the meal in a drunken debacle.

A recording of the phone call can be heard below, where the calm roommate tells the dispatcher Unternaher has been stabbed "in the chest area," and "is still breathing."

He also stated Unternaher was unconscious, but he wasn't sure if it was because of the alcohol or his wound.

According to the chilling phone call, Unternaher and Scheid were in the bathroom of their apartment, and Scheid was keeping pressure on his roommate's fatal wound.

Apparently, Unternaher had still been breathing at the time of the call.


The student reportedly died around 6:00 pm in the Akron City Hospital.

Akron Phi Delta Teta -- the fraternity both men were a part of -- announced the death of their beloved member on Sunday.


In memory of Unternaher, the frat wrote,

Brother Duncan passed earlier this afternoon. We are blessed to have shared so many wonderful memories with Duncan. A man to never know a stranger, Duncan was both inviting and outgoing. He quickly made friends everywhere he went, and was loved by the entire Akron community.

In an effort to raise money for Unternaher's memorial fund, a GoFundMe page has been set up. So far, donations have surpassed the goal of $5,000.

On Tuesday, December 6, Scheid pled not guilty to murdering his roommate, according to Fox 8.
