LEXINGTON, S.C. – A 19-year-old Gaston man accused of stabbing a family member during a domestic dispute Wednesday has been charged with attempted murder.


Jose Coria Emeterio is also charged with possessing a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.


“Based on information gathered at the scene and witness statements, Emeterio attacked a family member who was sleeping in a Swansea Road home,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Emeterio used a knife to slash the victim multiple times.”
