Rural Carthage man faces assault charge in stabbing of brother

CARTHAGE, Mo. — A rural Carthage man accused of stabbing his brother with a switchblade knife has been charged with felony assault.

Kyle M. Ware, 27, was arrested by Jasper County sheriff’s deputies after a disturbance Friday night at 1959 E. 13th St. during which he allegedly stabbed his brother, Wesley Ware, in the hand.

A probable-cause affidavit states that the brothers were arguing over a girl when Kyle Ware grabbed a knife and threatened his brother. Wesley Ware told deputies that he told his brother to go ahead and try to stab him if that’s what he wanted to do, and when Kyle swung the knife at him, he put his arm up to block it and was stabbed in the palm of his hand. Wesley Ware then tackled his brother and took the knife away from him, according to the affidavit.

The deputy who wrote the affidavit noted that Kyle Ware was “extremely intoxicated” when he was placed under arrest. The Jasper County prosecutor’s office charged him with second-degree assault.
