MIDVALE — A 21-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder, a second-degree felony, after being accused of stabbing a man who was living with the defendant's mother.

The incident occurred July 23 in the Midvale area. The woman and the victim were having an argument when the woman's son attacked the victim, according to charges filed Friday in 3rd District Court.

After the victim was stabbed with a steak knife, a witness took the knife from the defendant's hand, charges state.

If convicted of attempted criminal homicide, the defendant could face a $5,000 fine and up to 15 years in prison.
