A man who was stabbed Tuesday night in an alley in downtown Hagerstown was listed in fair condition Wednesday afternoon at Washington County Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Jesse Lee Spangler, 26, was stabbed multiple times in the upper torso in an alley at the rear of 25 W. Church St., according to Hagerstown Police.
Jason Scott Marquart, 34, of Hagerstown, is charged with attempted first-degree and attempted second-degree murder in the incident. He was being held Wednesday afternoon in the Washington County Detention Center after Washington County District Judge Mark D. Thomas denied bond for him earlier in the day, a jail spokeswoman said.
A witness to the stabbing said Spangler and Marquart were sitting on a wall drinking whiskey when for unknown reasons, Spangler kicked or pushed Marquart off the wall, according to Washington County District Court records.
