Apple's IPad Catches Murder in Progress

Apple's wonder tablet is now officially a crime-solving machine.

A Massachusetts man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death is being held without bail thanks in part to Apple's iPad.

Christopher Piantedosi, 39, allegedly got into a fight at the home of his longtime girlfriend last Thursday before allegedly stabbing her to death.

The couple's 15-year-old daughter reportedly heard the commotion while she was video-chatting with a friend of her iPad.

The girl then reportedly found her father holding a knife over her mother and the entire scene was witnessed by the daughter's friend through the iPad.

"The defendant had kicked in the door, threw the victim on the bed, and began stabbing her with a butcher knife, and that was visible to the daughter’s friend through the video-conferencing application," Middlesex Assistant District Attorney Nicole Allain told The Boston Globe.

The daughter ran out of the house and called the police.

Authorities told WCVB-TV that the iPad is being examined for forensic evidence.

Piantedosi has pleaded not guilty to one count of murder.
