Suspect arrested for stabbing man 3 times

by Wes Mayer

A man suspected of stabbing his sister’s husband three times with two knives was arrested by authorities with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office last week.

Around 6 p.m. on May 16, the suspect, David Barry Kimble, 61, came back to Coweta to visit his sister, who lives on the 600-block of Welcome Road. According to Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office, Kimble is not too fond of his sister’s husband, and when Kimble arrived, the two men began to argue.

This argument escalated to Kimble pulling out two knives and stabbing the other man twice in the abdomen and once in the shoulder, Yarbrough said.

Authorities soon arrived and took Kimble into custody, and the victim was transported to Atlanta Medical Center – he has since been treated and released, Yarbrough said. Kimble was charged with aggravated assault with a knife and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
