Region 8 man accused in MO house party stabbing changes plea

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KAIT) - An Arkansas man who pleaded guilty to assaulting four people at a house party in Missouri changed his plea Monday.

Brandon Rowe of Jonesboro pleaded guilty last month to assaulting the people at a house party in Cape Girardeau in May. Monday, he pleaded not guilty to first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Police said Rowe was in possession of a knife and stabbed one of the victims and injured the others.

Rowe originally pleaded guilty September 19 and got two amended second-degree assault charges as part of a plea deal. According to Cape Girardeau County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney John Koester, the state reverted it's charges to the original four counts of first degree assault after Rowe withdrew his guilty plea.

Rowe was one of three men arrested in connection to the May 3 house party. The incident occurred on North Pacific Street where three men received minor injuries and one was stabbed.

Rowe is scheduled to be back in court January 17 for a pretrial conference.
