Greenwood Stabbing Suspect Has Dec. 15 Court Date
GREENWOOD (KFSM) – A 19-year-old Greenwood man is being held without bond after police say he stabbed his stepfather Monday.
Lane Christian was booked Monday night into the Sebastian County Detention Center, where he remains without bond. His next court date is scheduled for Dec. 15, according to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office.
Greenwood police said Christian stabbed his stepfather, Jerry Primm, while trying to break up an argument between Primm and Christian’s mother. Primm suffered a “bad slash” on his arm that was non-life-threatening, police said. Primm was released from the hospital Monday afternoon and is described by police as being in good shape.
Christan faces a charge of first-degree domestic battery. Police said the stabbing happened at a duplex on Allynne Court.
“The suspect was sitting on the porch of the apartment,” said Det. Joey Deer. “Due to the statements made by the victim and the Arkansas Domestic Abuse Laws, (police) went ahead and took him into custody at that time and obtained consent to search the residence and took photographs of the crime scene and found the weapon involved.”
Deer said the incident happened in the living room. He said the gash on Primm’s arm was about three inches deep and the entire width of his arm.
