A Cassville man is facing four felonies after allegedly stabbing a man and threatening another at a home on Farm Road 1110 on June 5.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Deputy Kyle Rhea, with the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, Mellow allegedly stabbed a man in the home in the left side of his upper torso, using a large knife. Due to the injury, the man had to be flown to Mercy Springfield and was in critical condition at the Intensive Care Unit on June 6.
