A man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing that left another man dead Wednesday afternoon in Wilkes County
Shane Meyerhoffer, 23, was charged with murder following an incident reported around 3:15 p.m. at a home on Southwood Drive off Rock Creek Road in Hays.
Anthony Sheppard, 28, of Moravian Falls, was found stabbed multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene. Meyerhoffer also was injured in the incident and was treated at the hospital, Wilkes County communications officials said.
Wilkes County deputies believe the stabbing happened during some type of argument involving the two men. Deputies said they believe the men were acquaintances.
Sheppard first went to Meyerhoffer’s home on Southwood Drive for reasons that are still being investigated, said Wilkes County Sheriff Chris Shew. Sheppard died at the home of Meyerhoffer’s neighbor as he was seeking help following the altercation, Shew said.
The stabbing involved pocket knives, communications officials said.
Meyerhoffer was held without bond in the Wilkes County Jail.
