Court date set for defendant in stabbing case

GIRARD, Kan. — A suspect is being held at the Crawford County Jail on a charge of attempted murder in the stabbing of another man Wednesday afternoon in Girard.

Police Chief Jeff McDonald said officers responding to a fight about 5:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of North Ozark Street found 42-year-old Jeff Terwilliger near Girard City Hall with apparent stab wounds.

McDonald said officers rendered aid to the bleeding man until an ambulance arrived and took him to the Girard Medical Center.

Terwilliger subsequently was flown by medical helicopter to Freeman Hospital West in Joplin.

Police arrested Brian L. Taylor, 42, about 5:30 p.m. Thursday in connection with the stabbing. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder or, in the alternative, aggravated battery, according to the Crawford County district attorney’s office.

Taylor is being held on a $100,000 bond and has a court date set May 7 in Crawford County District Court.
