MAYNARD, AR (KAIT) – A Maynard man is behind bars after deputies found a man stabbed on Sunday.

Lt. Michael King is with the Randolph County Sheriff's Department, and he told Region 8 News that on January 12, Zachary Wade Sellers went to a home on Joshua Cove to fight a man.

Lt. King said Sellers, 19, and his friend went to the home of the man Sellers was supposed to fight, but the man stayed inside the home.

The man told William Taber that he felt uneasy by himself and asked Taber to stay with him. Meanwhile, Sellers and his friend tried to enter the home. Lt. King said the homeowner told him that after Taber came over, he fell asleep and was woken up by Taber.

According to the homeowner, Taber ran outside and tried to catch up with Sellers. When he caught up and grabbed Sellers, Taber was stabbed in the stomach area.

According to Lt. King, both Sellers and his friend then ran away from the scene.

A friend met with Sellers and the unidentified man and drove them back home. While they were in Sellers' home, the driver told police she saw Sellers bleach the knife and hide it in a furnace vent.

On Tuesday, a warrant was issued for Sellers' arrest. When deputies searched his home at the 200-block of Military Road, they found several knives and a pipe used to smoke marijuana.

In the affidavit for his arrest, Zachary Sellers faced felony charges for attempted murder, attempted aggravated residential burglary, and tampering with physical evidence.

He was also charged with misdemeanors for criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Lt. King said Taber was airlifted to the Elvis Presley Trauma Center and shared his family told him he had his stomach and intestine cut and had a severe infection.
