  • One Newton man is in jail following a stabbing and a stand off early Saturday morning.
    Justin Kater, 30, of Newton was arrested on charges of aggravated battery after he allegedly stabbed Mark McAnulty, 56, of Newton.
    "We were called after McAnulty was already at the hospital," said Lt. Scott Powell of the Newton Police Dept. "Kater was holed up in the house."
    Kater allegedly stabbed McAnulty with a fillet knife in the abdomen. Powell said the wounds were "not life threatening."
    McAnulty was admitted to Newton Medical Center and then transferred to a Wichita hospital.
    The stabbing, and ensuing four-hour standoff, happened 127 Lakeview in Newton.
    Kater was taken into custody after the use of tear gas, and Newton ERT entering the home at about 7 a.m. Powell said no shots were fired during the incident.
    "It may have sounded like it, but that was just our gas canisters," Powell said.
