A stabbing Tuesday in Rockcastle County left a man recovering from surgery and his daughter in jail.
Shawana Burkhart, 37, was charged Tuesday with attempted murder in the stabbing of her father, Orville Burkhart, 71, Rockcastle Sheriff Mike Peters said.
Orville Burkhart, who had been stabbed multiple times with a serrated steak knife, was flown to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where he underwent surgery, Peters said.
Burkhart and his daughter lived on Countryside Circle, and that's where he was stabbed, Peters said.
Never miss a local story.
Burkhart was able to walk from the home.
"He wandered to the neighbor's house after it happened," Peters said. "The neighbor then called 911. When deputies arrived, they could tell a stabbing had occurred."
Shawana Burkhart was home when deputies arrived, and she was arrested, Peters said.
It's not clear what led to this particular dispute, but the pair have a "history of squabbling," Peters said.
Shawana Burkhart is now in the Rockcastle County jail.
