STEVENSON, AL (WAFF) -

Warrants are being obtained for a man in Jackson County after an early morning stabbing in Stevenson.

Jackson County Sheriff's officials say 44-year-old Neil Quintis Price of Bridgeport will be facing first-degree assault charges.

Sheriff's deputies got a call to this home on Old Mount Carmel Road shortly after 4:30 a.m. Thursday. That's where they found 40-year-old Eric Shane Hutchins had been stabbed multiple times on the porch.

Hutchins was taken to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.

Investigators said Price fled the scene but was apprehended later in the day in Marion County, Tennessee.

Now they're trying to figure out why the stabbing took place.

“Not right now, I don't know. We don't really know. We haven't been able to talk to the victim due to his injuries,” said Sheriff Chuck Phillips.

The sheriff said they will seek extradition of Price to Alabama.

Family members said late Thursday morning Hutchins had just completed surgery.
