A man will serve half a year behind bars for throwing knives at another man at his home.
The defendant, Christopher Tyler Young, 28, entered best-interest pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of aggravated assault and was directed to serve 180 days of an eight-year sentence.
His sentence comes for his assault on Charles Ferrell at the victim’s Kayla Lane home.
“He (Young) was looking for his wife,” the warrant against Young reads. “They had been in an argument in their home earlier in the evening.”
Young tried to enter through the front door of Ferrell’s home, according to the indictment, to search for his wife. Ferrell’s intervention did not sit well with Young as he reportedly sought retribution for being turned away at the door.
“When he stopped Mr. Young at the door, Mr. Young threatened to kill him,” the warrant reads. “He then threw two knives at Mr. Ferrell. Mr. Young then picked up a chair and struck Mr. Ferrell in the hand.”
The victim said the onslaught was not over as Young showed his contempt one more time before leaving the premises.
“As Mr. Young was leaving, he threw a large concrete block at Mr. Ferrell,” the warrant concludes.
