  • James David Love III (allegedly) stabs to stay in shape.

This horrific Christmas Eve tale can only begin one way: 'Twas

the night before Christmas when all through the house, James Love went a'butchering one Cody Strouse.

Just after midnight on December 25, the two men were

attending different Christmas Eve parties on the same block, reports Fox 4.

Love -- who is dating Strouse's ex-girlfriend -- had been trashing Strouse all night.

When Love learned that Strouse was at the gathering right next door, he allegedly put on

his sociopath party face (see mugshot) and convinced Strouse to come over.

In the brotherly spirit of Christmas, Strouse fell for it.

When he walked through the door, Love is accused of slapping Strouse in the head,

and then unsheathing a butcher knife and trying to stab him. Love was restrained,

however, by the host of the party. Emily Post would have been proud.

Strouse is a man who knows absolutely no fear, apparently. He

went back to the celebration next door and continued to party. Nobody called the

police.

But Love wasn't through dispensing Christmas cheer. A bit

later, when Strouse was kicking it with friends outside, Love approached

him -- manic, shirtless and with his butcher knife agleam. He allegedly stabbed Strouse in

the gut, in the chest, and in the throat, and then tried to make a run for it.

Strouse's friends restrained him until the police arrived.

Love ended the night by getting a first-degree assault charge, a $100,000 bond and this cheery keepsake mugshot fit for

the cover of a D'Angelo Christmas album.
