Morgan Stanley exec to make court appearance on Friday over stabbing, hate crime charge

Investment bank Morgan Stanley’s co-head of North American fixed-income capital markets is expected to make a court appearance Thursday on charges that he stabbed a New York City cabbie.

William Bryan Jennings was charged with a hate crime earlier this month after allegedly stabbing the cab driver, who drove Jennings from New York to his Connecticut home. Reports say Jennings also refused to pay the fare.

According to an industry report, Morgan Stanley has placed the executive on leave.
