Stabbing Charges Dropped Against Raleigh County Man


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.
