Man charged in stabbing amid dispute over drugs

Jiminez, 20, faces malicious wounding, narcotics counts in alleged attack on neighbor

By Preston Knight -- pknight@nvdaily.com

NEW MARKET -- A resident of the Blue Ridge Inn is accused of stabbing a neighbor following a dispute regarding a drug transaction.

Ulises Carpio Jiminez, 20, who lives at the inn at 2251 Old Valley Pike, has been charged with malicious wounding in the Dec. 18 incident, according to a criminal complaint filed in Shenandoah County General District Court. He is accused of stabbing Jonathan Aaron Peck in the left forearm.

A Sheriff's Office investigator was requested to respond to the inn at about 11:30 p.m. because of a reported malicious wounding, according to the complaint. Peck, who also lives at the Old Valley Pike business and was identified as the victim, indicated he had visited the room of the accused when an altercation occurred, and he suffered a laceration.

In an interview hours later, Peck stated that he and Jiminez made a narcotics transaction on Dec. 15, with the drug fronted to him and payment to be made later, the complaint states. Peck went to Jiminez's room on Dec. 18 for the purpose of making payment.
However, Peck did not have the funds to reimburse Jiminez, the complaint states, and instead attempted to repay by offering another narcotic.

This offer infuriated Jiminez, it states, and as Peck attempted to flee the room, he was stabbed.

Maj. Scott Proctor said Peck required minor stitches at Page Memorial Hospital, and several pocket knives were found at the scene. Also discovered through a consent search was white powder residue consistent with cocaine, the complaint states. As a result, Jiminez also was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Additional charges are pending, Proctor said. Peck told the investigator that he was on probation in Page County and that the information he was sharing would most likely be a violation.

Jiminez, who remains in custody, is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in Shenandoah County General District Court on Jan. 25.
