Christopher Lake, 23, was arguing with his mother when his twin brother, Alexander, tried to intervene, said Capt. Sean Crosier with the Sheriff's Department. Christopher allegedly sliced open his brother's abdomen, causing serious injuries, and fled the scene before police arrived, Crosier said.
Alexander Lake is in critical condition at a local hospital, Crosier said. Police are searching for Christopher Lake, who is described as white, 5' 8" tall and 150 pounds. Anyone with information on Lake's whereabouts can contact the Sheriff’s Department anonymously at 304-357-0169.
