Prosecution: Defense can’t argue self-defense in fatal 2016 stabbing

CLARKSBURG — The state contends a man charged with murder in a fatal Clarksburg stabbing shouldn’t be permitted to argue self-defense.

When John Thomas III used deadly force against victim Roy Horton, Thomas didn’t believe Horton “was about to inflict death or serious bodily harm on him,” Assistant Prosecutor Andrea Roberts asserts.

She cites statements by the 57-year-old Thomas as well as a police interview of him.

Thomas is set for trial the week of June 5 on a murder charge, with Judge Chris McCarthy presiding. The sides will argue pretrial issues at a pretrial hearing next Friday.

In the interview recorded by police, Thomas said Horton “grabbed him by the back of the neck, and then (Thomas) states ‘I turned around and jilted him with it. I said, ‘man, you don’t live here,'” according to Roberts.

According to Thomas, Horton then said, “You stuck me,” Roberts asserts.

Thomas said Horton then came at him again

I was assured by supporters of gun control that this sort of thing never happens.

Monday night police were dispatched to a stabbing at 10 Marie Lane, where they found 47-year-old Darren Terry with three lacerations. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Darren’s brother, 30-year-old Chris Terry, was taken into custody for first-degree domestic battery in the case and is being held at the Lonoke County jail on a $10,000 bond.

Upon further investigation, authorities learned a Good Samaritan, identified as Lt. Brandon Teel, witnessed the incident and reported the crime to police.

When he realized the severity of the fight, police say Teel took out his concealed weapon, for which he has a valid permit, and held the suspect until Austin officers were able to take him into custody.

Teel, 35, of Ward, is an

Stabbing suspect has violent criminal history

Falls police say the suspect in an alcohol-fueled brawl, that left four people stabbed inside a Third Street bar early Sunday morning, has done time for a manslaughter conviction and has been arrested in New York City on a gun charge.

Detectives are continuing to piece together a profile of Eddie Alnardo Mayo, who they say stabbed a woman he may have been trying to “pick up” in the bar as well as her boyfriend and the boyfriend’s brother and sister.

Mayo, 35, of Willow Avenue, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree assault, three counts of second-degree assault and four counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He is being held without bail.

Investigators say Mayo is a newcomer to the Falls, but not to New York state, where prior to 2008 he picked up a gun charge in the Bronx. The outcome of that case has not been determined yet.

Mayo also had

NKY woman found guilty of stabbing mother 70 times sentenced

An Independence woman who was found guilty of murder for stabbing her mother more than 70 times was sentenced to 27 years in prison on Thursday.

According to prosecutors, Laura Conley broke knives during the attack, only to get additional knives and continue stabbing her mother, 69-year-old Carlene Conley, in the kitchen of the home they shared.

The Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office said prosecutors cited Lara Conley’s multiple inconsistent and uncorroborated versions of the events during the case. It took three hours for a jury to return a guilty verdict.

According to prosecutors, on March 14, 2015, Lara Conley reported a home invasion at the home she shared with her mother and told the 911 operator that someone had hurt her mother. Officers found Carlene Conley dead
