Waynesburg man charged with attempted murder in stabbing

An argument at a party early today ended with one man in the hospital suffering from a stab wound to the chest and another in jail facing attempted murder charges.

Danville police Capt. James Monroe said the stabbing occurred at 12:30 a.m. at 114 Ashley Way. He said victim Philip S. Davis, Danville, was allegedly stabbed in the chest by Billy S. Wilson, 27, of Waynesburg.

"It appeared they may have ingested too much at a party-type deal," said Monroe. "We are not sure at this time what precipitated the argument."


Davis was treated at the scene by Boyle County Emergency Medical Service before being transported to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, where he remains under treatment.

Wilson was arrested, charged with attempted murder and remains lodged in the Boyle County Detention Center. Bond had not yet been set.

Monroe said Detective Bob Williamson is in charge of the investigation, which is ongoing.

Man accused of stalking wildlife officer in Casey County

LIBERTY - A man has been accused of stalking a wildlife officer, according to documents in Casey Circuit Clerk Craig Overstreet's office.

William E. Perry, 43, who reportedly lives in Casey County, was arrested Sunday evening on charges of first-degree stalking, third-degree criminal trespassing and second-degree fleeing or evading police.

Deputy Sheriff Chad Weddle reported that Perry was sitting behind the residence of state Fish and Wildlife Officer Roger Weddle on Delp Road, then fled on foot into the woods when Chad Weddle asked him to leave several times. He was apprehended later in the bushes behind the residence.

Perry had been arrested March 2 on threatening and disorderly conduct charges and pleaded guilty. He was told to leave the county or serve 30 days in jail. He was under a $5,000 cash bond.

After the incident Sunday, Perry was lodged in the Casey County Detention Center. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday in district court.
