On the afternoon of Saturday, March 11, 2017 Deputy M. A. Lonsinger was dispatched by Metro 911 to a stabbing in the parking lot of the Walmart store at Quincy. The victim, Andrew Stevens, suffered a cut to his left hand during a fight with Jimmy Dewayne Keith (21 of Pond Gap, WV). During what began as a fist-fight Mr. Keith produced a knife cutting Mr. Stevens before fleeing the area.
During the course of the investigation a warrant was obtained for Mr. Keith charging him with malicious wounding. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office at 304-357-0169.
