[ARCHIVED] Police Make Arrest in Stabbing Incident

James City County Police Department patrol vehicle

On Aug. 29 at approximately 1:30 a.m., officers were called to the 190 block of Lakeside Drive in Historic Powhatan Resort to an assault. Two victims were located. The first victim, a 22-year-old Newport News man, suffered numerous stab wounds and was flown to VCU Medical Center with serious injuries. He has since been released from the hospital. The second victim, a 21-year-old James City County resident, suffered a minor stab wound to his shoulder. He refused treatment.

The investigation would reveal that Katherine Kelly, a 21-year-old Toano resident, had been in the condo with the victims earlier in the night but had left after an argument. She returned a few minutes later with her father, Timothy Kelly, a 52-year-old Toano resident, and an unidentified male. The three arrived at the condo and knocked on the door. As the door began to open, Timothy Kelly forced his way in and attacked the 22-year-old victim stabbing him 13 times. The 21-year-old victim had been inside the condo and attempted to break up the fight. He received one stab wound to his shoulder. The unidentified male grabbed a bag containing a gaming system as the three fled the area.

Warrants were obtained for Katherine Kelly and Timothy Kelly for robbery, felonious assault, malicious wounding, malicious wounding by mob, breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit a felony (all felonies).

Katherine Kelly turned herself in to JCCPD on Sept. 9 at Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail. Timothy Kelly was taken into custody in Redondo Beach, CA on Sept. 9 and is awaiting extradition.
