A 10-year-old boy is charged with stabbing his father in a domestic dispute
Ross County Sheriff George Lavender reports his office was dispatched to the Adena Regional Emergency Room Tuesday at approximately 3:30pm in reference to an assault.
Deputies arrived at the Emergency Room and spoke to a witness 34-year-old Kelli J. Beller of Massieville who said that she had been in an argument with 33-year-old Ralph E. Humphrey of Massieville Road.
Mrs. Beller said that the next thing she knew Mr. Humphrey fell to the ground and said that he had been stabbed. Mrs. Beller told deputies that she then noticed her 10-year-old son standing behind them holding a forked cooking utensil.
Deputies next went to the 1200 block of Massieville Road and made contact with the juvenile suspect. The juvenile was taken into custody and transported to the Juvenile Detention Center and Felonious Assault Charges were filed with the Juvenile Prosecutor.
Deputies collected a two pronged cooking fork at the scene to be processed for evidence.
