DEPUTIES: Half Brothers Argue Over Woman, One Stabbed & The Other Arrested

An argument over a woman between two half brothers ended with one of them stabbed and the other in jail.

Carteret County deputies say Kristopher Edwards of Newport has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Deputies say it happened Friday at a home on Old Whitley Road outside of Beaufort.

The 27-year-old Edwards is accused of stabbing 25-year-old Michael Sanders in the chest with a pocket knife.

Sanders was first taken to Carteret General Hospital, and then airlifted to Vidant Medical Center. He has since been released from the hospital.

Edwards was jailed on a $75,000 bond and has a first appearance Monday.
