Attempted murder charges have been laid against two men and a woman after a stabbing in Kings County.

The Mounties report a man who had been stabbed showed up at a Windsor hospital last Tuesday morning with non-life threatening injuries.

The 26-year-old was able to identify two suspects and police tracked down a third.

A 67-year-old Hantsport man was arrested that day and a search of a Hantsport property turned up firearms, ammunition and cleaning supplies.

Investigators also seized the vehicle, which they believe was used in the stabbing.

Two days later, a 41-year-old Liverpool man and a 22-year-old Halifax woman were taken into custody.

Eric Hubley, Lexus Young, and Arnold Clifton Messervey are facing the following charges:

  • Attempt to Commit Murder;
  • Aggravated Assault;
  • Assault with a Weapon (two counts);
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose;
  • Uttering Threats;
  • Possession of a Firearm Knowing its Possession is Unauthorized;
  • Contravention of Firearms Storage Regulations;
  • Possession of a Firearm Contrary to Prohibition Order

Messervey is facing an additional charge of Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm. He was released on conditions and will appear in Kentville Provincial court on September 27th.

Hubley is facing charges of Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm and two counts of Failure to Comply with the Conditions of a Release Order.

Both Hubley and Young have been remanded into custody.
