Stabbing Suspect in Court


The suspect accused of stabbing another man to death makes his first court appearance in the case.

Ashley Richey walked into the Vigo County Courthouse Monday afternoon for his initial hearing.

Richey faces a charge of Voluntary Manslaughter in the death of 44-year-old Bradley Lawson.

The two men were roommates and got into a fight on Thursday night. That’s when authorities say Richey stabbed Lawson three times, once in the arm, the chest and the back.

On Monday, Richey heard the charges against him. The judge also set his bond at $100,000.

His next court appearance is scheduled for November.
