Man jailed for stabbing his own brother

Charlie McCray

Talk about your brotherly love.

Charlie and Timothy McCray had an argument last Saturday and, apparently, Charlie couldn’t let it go.

“They had some kind of verbal altercation earlier in the day,” said Wiggins Police Department Investigator Steve Taylor. “They passed each other later on the sidewalk and Charlie stuck him.”

Taylor said his department had received a call about a stabbing victim and, upon arriving on the scene, found Timothy McCray with less-than life threatening injuries.

“We had the suspect in custody within minutes,” he said. “We knew who it was, so we just went to his residence and picked him up.”

Taylor said McCray offered no resistance.

He is now lodged at the Stone County Regional Correctional Facility with a $25,000 bond on a felony charge of aggravated assault-use of a deadly weapon.
