Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Boyfriend stabs girlfriend

Beckley police say a woman was stabbed during a domestic dispute Friday.

The incident was reported at a Harper Road residence around 8:30 a.m.

Initially, the woman alleged she was stabbed by an unknown white male who fled the scene.

The woman later admitted to police that it was her boyfriend, Joe Edward Jones, 43, of Beckley, who stabbed her during a dispute, Patrolman R.J. Gauldin said.

The woman was taken to Raleigh General Hospital for minor lacerations to the hand and stomach and was released.

Jones was charged with unlawful wounding and was being held at Southern Regional Jail on $20,000 bond. If convicted, he could face one to five years in prison.
