PRINCETON, W.Va. (AP) — A stabbing attack at a southern West Virginia home left one man dead, three injured and one arrested, authorities said.
Eric Bent, 31, was charged with second-degree murder and three counts of malicious wounding in Saturday morning’s attack, Mercer County Sheriff’s Cpl. M.S. Horn told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.
Horn said all five men were at a home that belonged to one of the victims.
Horn said one stabbing victim was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center and the others were treated at a local hospital. All were expected to survive, he said.
Bent was taken to the Southern Regional Jail. It wasn’t clear whether he has an attorney.
