UPDATE: Trial date set for man accused of stabbing UVA-Wise students


A trial date is set for a Wise, VA man accused of stabbing two University of Virginia's College at Wise students last year.

Ricky Hamilton, 55, was indicted last week by a grand jury and is set to go on trial May 23, according to court records obtained by News 5. He is charged with attempted first-degree murder.

Hamilton was arrested in November following a confrontation with the two students who were neighbors. Police said Hamilton and the two men had prior disagreements. The two men were taken to a hospital for treatment of stab wounds.
