Krebs bound over for trial on attempted murder charge
David Krebs, who has been accused of stabbing and slitting the throat of Anthony Collins while in a moving car, has been bound over for trial.
After a preliminary examination Wednesday afternoon, Barry County Judge Michael Schipper ruled that there was enough evidence to try Krebs on two counts, assault with intent to murder and resisting and obstructing a police officer.
He was arrested Sept. 5, after the Barry County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit tracked him to a wooded area off Barber Road south of M-43 in Carlton Township.
During the hearing, Collins testified he spent five or six days in the hospital, and had two surgeries. Part of his lung was removed due to injuries sustained when he was stabbed 11 times.
Collins said he did not know why Krebs had attacked him, but claimed Krebs had been taking methamphetamine that evening. Collins was seated in the front passenger seat, while Krebs was seated behind him in the vehicle, when he allegedly reached up and slit his throat from one side to the other.
Collins said Krebs attacked him again after they got out of the vehicle, and Collins ran to a nearby house where a resident called 911 and attempted to stop the bleeding from his wounds until first responders arrived.
A trial date has not yet been set.
Full coverage of the court proceedings will be in next week's edition of the Banner.
