Teen wanted in stabbing at local party

CHICKASHA — Police are looking for Corey L. Earls, the suspect in a stabbing that occurred Feb. 19 at a Chickasha residence.

Earls, 18, of Chickasha, is charged in Grady County District Court with assault and battery with a deadly weapon for allegedly stabbing James Britt multiple times when Britt arrived at a party in the 600 block of W. Dakota Avenue. Prosecutors filed the charge on Monday.

According to an affidavit, several witnesses saw Earls, who was one day shy of his 18th birthday, assault Britt as the victim was getting out of a vehicle.

Britt told investigators that Earls punched him in the eye and then hugged him and began stabbing him. One witness reported that Britt tried to flee, but Earls caught up to him and stabbed him again.

Chickasha police Sgt. Jason Myrko saw a subject he knew to be Earls running from the scene on foot, the affidavit reported.
