HUNTINGTON - The following information was provided by criminal complaints filed at the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office:

MALICIOUS WOUNDING: One man was arrested early Tuesday morning following an alleged stabbing incident that involved another man he had been living with in the 4200 block of Hughes Branch Road in Huntington. The incident occurred about 2 a.m.

Jefferey Linton Meadows, 56, of Manchester, Tennessee, was jailed at 7:20 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities in Cabell County charged him with malicious wounding and domestic battery. Bond was not set.

According to the police report, deputies were dispatched to St. Mary’s Medical Center in reference to a stabbing. The 53-year-old male victim alleged he had asked Meadows to go smoke outside, at which point Meadows became angry and left the room and returned with a pot of boiling water, which he threw on the victim.

The victim alleged Meadows also swung at him with a butcher knife, slicing open his stomach, shoulder and eye. The victim said he was able to run out of the house and call his mother to take him to the hospital.

The police report states Meadows alleged he had gotten into an argument with the victim, and the victim pulled a firearm on him. Meadows alleged he was able to get the gun away from the victim, who then fled the residence.

The report states deputies located the knife used in the attack in a back bedroom closet and a firearm was located in a ditch behind the house.
