April 30, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

The case of a Hagerstown man charged with attempted second-degree murder in a March 4 stabbing was forwarded Tuesday to Washington County Circuit Court after a District Court judge found probable cause for the charges, court records show.

Corry DeJon Nelson, 28, of 250 N. Mulberry St., is also charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and carrying a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, court records show.

Nelson allegedly stabbed Andrew Parker during a fight just after midnight in the 200 block of North Mulberry Street, Hagerstown Police Sgt. J.L. Murray wrote in charging documents.

Parker had a potentially life-threatening cut on the left side of his abdomen that caused bleeding in and around his spleen and kidney, Murray wrote.
