Robert Broyles Heading To Court To Face Murder Charge
A man accused of trying to kill another man during the fourth of July holiday will be heading to court.
A judge has ruled there is sufficient evidence and testimony to press four charges against thirty-five year old Robert Broyles.
He is charged with one count of attempted second degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of possession of a deadly weapon.
Investigators say early on the morning of the Fourth of July, Broyles was drinking at Morad Park with forty-one -year-old Jason Mackrill and Benita White.
Investigators say jealousy sparked a fight, and Broyles stabbed Mackrill in the head.
Mackrill was able to escape and call police, and ended up going to the hospital for his injuries.
When police arrived on scene, they saw Broyles coming out of the bushes with a knife and a hatchet, saying he was going to kill someone, and then later officers located White.
At his preliminary hearing, prosecutors said that Broyles and White have had a history of domestic violence.
Broyles is being held on one-hundred thousand dollars bond, awaiting trial.
