Martin County Man Charged In Stabbing

A Williamston man is in jail after deputies say he stabbed another man Wednesday afternoon.

Martin County deputies have charged Brandon Wynne with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

The stabbing happened at the victim's home on Bailey Road outside of Williamston around 4:30 p.m. There they found Edward Linton had been stabbed in the left side of his chest. He was taken to Martin General Hospital and then flown to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where deputies say he is recovering.

Wynne was stopped by Pitt County deputies and transported back to Martin County to go before a magistrate. His bond was set at $50,000 and deputies say they don't yet have a motive for the stabbing.

    1) This guy deserves to be locked up. I didn't grow up with him but his crime list is way to long to still be out on the street. Is the U.S. getting so bad that you can get away with attemped murder? and 2) Martin County education is better than any other county out there. Tops to BGHS because more than 3/4s graduate with a 3.5 GPA or better.

    If you are going to quote bible verses and preach, then get the bible verse correct cause that really makes you look ignorant. As far as judging, giving an opinion and judging are totally different and everyone is entitled to opinions!!

    It was just a matter of time before Brandon and Dillon killed someone or were killed themselves. Nothing but trouble. This is not at all a surprise.

    I knew both him and his girlfriend. They aren't married. He has been nothing but trouble. He goes around my kids and DSS won't do anything. Wonder if they will see it now. All of you from BG should know who his Girlfriend is. A a shame she has 3 kids and rather tie herself up with this.
