Man Arrested For Stabbing His Dyersburg Nephew

DYERSBURG, Tenn. -- Dyersburg police have arrested an Illinois man for attempted murder in the alleged stabbing of his 25-year-old nephew over the weekend.

Mitchell was transported back to Dyersburg where he was charged with attempted murder, and filing a false police report.

Mitchell is currently being held in the Dyer County Law Enforcement Complex pending a court appearance in Dyersburg City Court.
