CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Police say a fight over who got to sleep in a bed led to bloodshed in Carroll County this week.
According to Indiana State Police (ISP), just after 11 p.m. Thursday crews were called to a home on US 421 just south of Monticello on a report of a stabbing.
ISP says 63-year-old Elmer D. Guinn wanted to go to sleep in his bed, but 20-year-old Jessica Boyd refused to get out of the bed. So, ISP says, Guinn stabbed Boyd in the right leg.
Guinn was arrested on preliminary charges of: battery with a deadly weapon, a Class B felony; criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a Class C felony; and intimidation with a deadly weapon, a Class C felony.
Guinn's bond was set at $50,000, and he currently sits in the Carroll County Jail.
Boyd was taken to IU White Memorial Hospital in Monticello with non-life-threatening injuries. She was treated and released, and ISP says the investigation is ongoing.
Assisting in the investigation Thursday evening: the Carroll County Sheriff's Office, Monticello Police Department and the White County Sheriff's Office.
ISP says the investigation going forward is being conducted by ISP Lafayette-post trooper Tyler Stinson.
