LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is accused of stabbing a man 10 times -- and now he's charged with attempted murder.
According to an arrest report, 22-year-old Montra L. Huddleston stabbed his neighbor nine times in his torso and once in his back with a steak knife on the night of March 25.
