DEPUTIES: Man Stabbed Over $80 Debt

Two men are charged with a stabbing Wednesday night at a Carteret County park.

Eric Freeman, Jr. is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury while Corey Conley is charged with accessory after the fact for driving Freeman from the stabbing.

Deputies say 19-year-old Timothy Shoaf was stabbed twice in the stomach at a community park in Broad Creek. They say the stabbing was apparently over an $80 debt that Shoaf owed to Freeman.

Both Newport men were arrested at Freeman's home and placed in jail on $10,000 secured bonds.

    Just sad...glad that my friend didn't do that to me, and I owed her $800 recently! The victim in question happens to be one of my old students and is a nice kid. It's too bad that he got caught up with these kind of people.

    Maybe he needed the $80 for a kidney transplant and decided to take the guy's kidney in place of the $80...?

    To The Stabber: you stabbed a man for $80 bucks, what would you have done to him if he had owed you $100, Kill him. You are a low life, You and your friend deserve real jail time and your bond should be $50,000 secured.
