Hutchinson police say a 19-year-old man survived being stabbed "dozens of time" during a home invasion.
Prosecutors say Jeffrey J. Payne was attacked late Monday or early Tuesday after four people forced their way into his home. He was airlifted to a Wichita hospital. A prosecutor said during a hearing Wednesday for one suspect in the stabbing that Payne nearly died and remained in critical condition.
Other people in the home were allegedly threatened but not injured.
One suspect, 22-year-old Jordan Leshore, was charged with several counts, including attempted first-degree murder. He is jailed on $250,000 bond. A status hearing was scheduled for March 12.
The Hutchinson News reports police are still looking for three other suspects.
