ALABAMA MAN CHARGED IN WEEKEND STABBING DEATH

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say an Alabama man has been charged with murder in a weekend stabbing in Lee County.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that 28-year-old Taylor Rhea Sanders has been jailed in the slaying.

Deputies found 30-year-old Joel Lynn Pouncey of Cusseta dead from an apparent stab wound on Saturday and recovered a knife at the scene.

Investigators have not released a possible motive in the killing.

It was not immediately known if Sanders had an attorney to represent him.
