December 27, 2007

A Hagerstown man was being held without bond after police said he tried to kill another man with a pocketknife, according to court records.

Kevin Duane Walker, 51, of no known address, was charged Monday with attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and carrying a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure, according to court records.

Hagerstown Police Officer Clifton S. Briggs said he arrived at a house in the 200 block of Elizabeth Street on Monday about 2 a.m. to find a man with a blood-soaked shirt, numerous cuts on his abdomen and "what appeared to (be) some type of an internal body part hanging out from his left side due to the stabbing," according to charging documents filed in Washington County District Court.

Walker told Briggs he had been staying at the victim's home and was sleeping on the floor when the victim came in and told him to leave, Briggs wrote in charging documents.

Walker said the victim swung a baseball bat at him, brushing the top of his head near his left ear, and Walker grabbed a pocketknife and stuck the victim with it, Briggs wrote.

Both men appeared to be intoxicated, Briggs wrote.

A hearing in the case was scheduled for Jan. 22 in Washington County District Court.
