Man indicted in stabbing of girlfriend’s brother

RICHMOND — A man who was charged with stabbing his girlfriend’s brother three times was indicted Wednesday by a Madison grand jury.

James Corey Allen, 25, was indicted on charges of first-degree assault and tampering with physical evidence.

Richmond police officers responded to a call about a disturbance May 26 in the 200 block of North Second Street.

When they arrived, they reported finding a man, Christopher Kelleher, with stab wounds – one to the left side of his lower chest area and another wound to his left side. However, the indictment states Kelleher was stabbed twice in the chest and once in the back.

Kelleher was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the RPD.

The report stated that Allen and his girlfriend’s brother had been physically fighting when Allen attacked the other man with a fixed-blade hunting knife.

Allen also was charged with tampering with physical evidence after police say he tried to hide the knife outside the home before they arrived.

Allen could face a maximum of 25 years in prison if convicted of both charges. He was released June 14 on bond from the Madison Count Detention Center.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
