A Sunday night stabbing left one man in the hospital and another the run from the law.
Johnny Wayne Gill, 45, of Bokoshe, is accused of stabbing his sister's boyfriend, Stephen Vigus, 51, in the chest at a home near Bokoshe.
Vigus said Gill, who lived next door, called him and said he wanted to talk to him outside. Vigus told police he and Gill had argued earlier Sunday and when he met outside Gill stabbed him. After the alleged assault, Gill ran into the woods, according to court records.
LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale said Vigus suffered a stab wound and deep cut to his chest but the wounds were not considered life threatening. Vigus was taken LeFlore County Emergency Medical Services to Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith, Ark.
Several members searched the area for Gill but were unable to locate him.
