DECATUR, Ala. (WAFF) - A Decatur man who was charged with domestic violence for stabbing his mother’s husband in 2021 has been indicted by a grand jury on a murder charge.

In 2021, officers with the Decatur Police Department responded to a reported stabbing at a home on Moulton St.

According to the Decatur Police Department, they made contact with a woman who said her son, who has been identified as 38-year-old Jason Oneal Stovall, stabbed her husband.

The man later died from his injuries leading to Stovall being indicted on a murder charge.

Authorities say Stovall barricaded himself in his room and would not comply with the Decatur Police Department following the stabbing. Officers then obtained a search and arrest warrant for Stovall’s arrest.

On Sept. 14 a new arrest warrant was filed for Stovall with the charge of murder. Two days later, more court documents were filed showing that an arraignment has been set for Nov. 14 at 1:30 p.m.
