Man wanted in Lexington stabbings is arrested in Clark County

A man wanted in the stabbings of two people in Lexington was arrested in Clark County on Monday night.

Morgan Alexander Adams, 33, is charged with first-degree assault in the stabbing of a man and a woman on Sunday, according to Lexington police.

He was being held in the Clark County Detention Center on Tuesday, police said.

Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said officers were sent to Hartford Place Apartments in the 1500 block of Martha Court about 10:15 p.m. They found a woman who had been stabbed in the neck, she said.

About the same time, Roberts said, a second call came in from another apartment on the street, stating a man had been stabbed in the arm.

Both victims were taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Roberts said both victims apparently were in the same apartment when the stabbings occurred.
