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

Stolen chainsaw leads to stabbing

DAVY – An argument over a chain saw led Tuesday to the stabbing of one McDowell County resident and the arrest of another.

The West Virginia State Police was dispatched after a fight was reported at 4 p.m. in Davy, said the investigating officer, Trooper J.S. McCarty.

“There was a verbal altercation between two subjects that originated over a stolen chain saw,” McCarty said. “It led to a physical altercation between them. At the end, one of the subjects had been stabbed in the upper torso at least one time.”

Dock Roberts, 35, of Davy was transported to Welch Community Hospital where he was listed in stable condition, McCarty said.

Troopers arrested Anthony Cantrell, 41, also of Davy. Cantrell was charged with one count of malicious wounding, assault during commission of a felony, and one count of brandishing. He was remanded to the McDowell County Jail pending arraignment.

Sgt. W.C. Tupper, Sgt. A. Maddy, Trooper First Class B.J. Garretson and Senior Trooper J.W. Keffer also worked on the case.
