*W.Va. man charged with Winchester stabbing

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- City police converged on a home Tuesday and arrested a man accused of stabbing another man in the chest early Saturday morning.

Officers took Christopher Michael Brill into custody sometime between 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. at a home on Euclid Avenue, according to Sgt. Frank Myrtle, of the Winchester Police Department. Authorities sought to arrest Brill, 38, of Capon Bridge, W.Va., on a charge of malicious wounding.

Information on Brill's bond status was not available.

A SWAT team in the area assisted police in making the arrest, Myrtle said. Police took Brill into custody without incident, according to Myrtle.

Police acted on a tip they received indicating Brill may be at the Euclid Avenue residence. Myrtle said he could not comment on why Brill was found at the home.

Police allege Brill stabbed Wayne Stevenson Mitchell, 20, of Winchester, several times with a knife during an argument, Myrtle said. Both men were part of different groups gathered in the parking lot near the Shenandoah University basketball courts at Lowery and University drives, Myrtle said.

The men neither knew each other before the incident nor had any association with the university, according to Myrtle.

Mitchell went by private vehicle to Winchester Medical Center where he treated for minor puncture wounds and released, Myrtle said.
