A District Court judge found probable cause Tuesday to forward to Circuit Court all charges against a man accused of stabbing his mother Feb. 6 in their Halfway home.
Daniel Harp, 43, is charged with attempted first-degree and attempted second-degree murder. He is accused of stabbing Nancy Harp, 68, two or three times at the 11234 Scarlet Oak Drive home they shared.
Nancy Harp, who has multiple sclerosis and was under her son's care at the time of the stabbing, was released about 10 days after the assault from Washington County Hospital, according to her daughter, Deena Harp, 45.
At the hearing, Daniel Harp, an amputee whose orange jail jumpsuit was knotted below his right knee, slumped in his chair, clutched his crutches with one hand and showed little expression as Washington County Sheriff's Department Deputy Jon Witmer explained the investigation.
