Charleston Man Claims Self-Defense In Stabbing

{West Virginia}...Michael Cleo Jones, a man who claims he was acting in self-defense when he stabbed another man on July 4th, was arrested by Charleston Police Thursday on malicious wounding charges. Jones says he stabbed Andre Hamilton, whom he says he doesn't know, because he broke into his home. Police say evidence indicates Jones stabbed Hamilton in the chest during a fight, and Jones and Hamilton are familiar with each other. In fact, police say Hamilton and his brother went to Jones' home to avenge Hamilton's father's drug overdose. Hamilton is in the hospital in critical condition. Jones is being held at the South Central Regional Jail on $25,000 bond.
