Mercer County man stabbed by roommate

BRUSHFORK — A Mercer County man was stabbed with a butcher knife Thursday afternoon following a verbal argument with his roommate in the travel trailer at the Woody’s Trailer Park where the two men lived, according to Lt. J.E. Parks of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department.

Kevin Brinkley, 28, was transported by the Bluefield Rescue Squad to Bluefield Regional Medical Center suffering a non-life threatening leg wound, Parks said. Another man, McKinley Jones, 37, was being questioned at the scene.

“They were in a heated discussion that started this afternoon that suddenly turned physical,” Parks said.
