A second person has died from a multiple-person stabbing in Huntington, and a suspect was apprehended and charged Friday.
James Lee Bonewits, 27, faces two counts of murder and two felony counts of attempted murder.
His initial hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. Monday in Huntington Circuit Court, and he’s being held without bond, according to the Huntington County prosecutor’s office.
The Huntington County coroner’s office identified the two who died as Danny J. England, 31, and Katelyn (Huddleston) England, 27, both of the 600 block of Whitelock Street.
The other two victims remain in critical condition. Neither the Huntington police nor the prosecutor’s office named them.
Police were called to the scene about 7:25 p.m. Thursday and provided aid until the Huntington Fire Department EMS arrived, according to a news release. But Danny J. England died at the scene. The others were taken to hospitals with life-threatening conditions. The Huntington police announced Katelyn England’s death Friday morning.
Police identified Bonewits as a person of interest. He was at the home but left before police arrived, according to the news release.
Police found his vehicle abandoned in Madison County. It had an Illinois license plate, the release said, but it’s not clear whether Bonewits is from Illinois, and no address is given in online records. Based on a description of his car and of Bonewits, police received multiple tips on his whereabouts.
