Charges are dropped against a Beckley man accused of a stabbing.
Police arrested Bruce Martin in January.
Martin confessed to stabbing a 27-year-old four times at the Pagoda Hotel in Beckley.
The men were in a room drinking with a few other people when a fight broke out.
The victim was taken to Raleigh General hospital for treatment.
Martin was charged with malicious wounding.
Again this case was dismissed pending further investigating.
