Norris recovering after stabbing, robbery last week By Andy Heuring An Otwell man stabbed in his bedroom by a couple try- ing to rob him on Monday, Oct. 11 is now home recover- ing from those wounds. Chad Norris, 43, suffered a six-inch deep wound. His mother, Kathy Miller, said Norris was at home, but had a long recovery ahead of him. Lloyd J. Carpenter, 37, of 1230 Second Ave., Jasper, and Emily Shelton, of 4555 Wrights Lane, Birdseye, have both been charged with count I attempted murder, a level 1 felony, and count II aggravat- ed battery, a level 3 felony. A level 1 felony is punish- able by 20 to 40 years in pris- on. According to a probable cause affidavit released last week after The Press-Dis- patch was published, Carpen- ter and Shelton were upset with Norris because of graph- ic pictures they claimed Nor- ris had sent to Shelton. Ac- cording to the affidavit, Nor- ris told police he didn't know either of the Norris brothers and "that the idea to rob Nor- ris was Shelton's and that he went there to have her back." It also states police had not been able to determine if any- thing had been stolen from the Norris residence on Oct. 11. According to the affidavit, police first located Shelton in Birdseye and she originally told them she took the knife and stabbed Norris. But later changed her story and said Carpenter had stabbed Nor- ris. Carpenter said after driving to Otwell, they went the Nor- ris' back door and knocked. When Cory Norris, Chad's brother, answered it, Shelton went straight into the house and to Chad's bedroom, where they found him naked. Car- penter said Shelton told Chad that Carpenter was her man and she then began hitting Chad. Carpenter told police Chad kicked Shelton in the stomach and then yelled for his broth- er, Cory, who came into the room and started punching them, and all four were fight- ing. Carpenter claimed he then pulled the knife and started swinging it around to get away from them. He said he man- aged to get to the kitchen and saw Chad pull up his shirt and he had blood on him. Carpen- ter said he and Shelton ran out of the door and went toward their car that was parked at the Circle A. On their way, he said Shelton threw the knife toward a residence between Norris' and Circle A. Carpenter said when they were on their way to the car, Shelton realized she had been cut as well. The affida- vit continues that Carpenter and Shelton started arguing and she said she would take the charge. But he added, "he knew Shelton would tell the truth and end up telling what had happened." The affidavit also states, Carpenter said "he under- stood that when he pulled the knife out, anything could have happed, from serious injury to even death." Shelton and Carpenter were taken into custody by police on Oct. 11. Winslow mother and children released from hospital after crash A mother and her three chil- dren involved in a serious acci- dent last Tuesday morning on the way to school have all been released from the hospital, ac- cording to a family member. Aleshia Kuebler, 30, of Winslow, was driving south on Highway 61, near the north edge of Winslow, when she ap- parently had a seizure and ran off the road. Her son, Daxon Cates, 8, had unbuckled him- self and was trying to assist his mother then the crash oc- curred. Both he and Aleshia were ejected from the vehicle. Lynix Cates, 6, and Kandance Cates, 1, were buckled in their child seats. A-8 Wednesday, October 20, 2021 The Press-Dispatch
