A Jefferson City man has been charged on Monday with three felonies after he allegedly tried to kill a man by stabbing him on Sunday.

Adam Wieners, 25, was charged with first-degree domestic assault, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. He was arrested on Sunday evening and a warrant was served on Tuesday. He is being held without bond. An arraignment was set for Wednesday.

According to the probable cause statement, Cole County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence in reference to a “disturbance involving a knife.” When deputies arrived, a witness brought them to a backroom and found the victim bleeding over a pool of blood, the statement says. The victim was being cared for by another witness. The victim and Wieners live at the same residence, the statement says

The victim was brought to University Hospital and was treated for two knife wounds in his neck and back area, court documents say.

Wieners was brought to the Capital Region Emergency Room for a “fit for confinement review,” court documents say. Wieners allegedly admitted to stabbing and wanting to kill the victim and told deputies that he punched and stabbed the man, court documents say.

Multiple witnesses told law enforcement that Wieners and the victim started arguing around 8 p.m. and Wieners stabbed the man shortly after, the statement says. One of the witnesses forced the knife from Wieners’ hands, the statement says.

The victim interviewed with law enforcement at University Hospital and stated Wieners was upset after coming back from a basketball game, the statement says. After eating dinner, Wieners allegedly started yelling at the victim and the victim tried to calm him down, the statement says. The victim told deputies that Wieners went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and said he was going to “kill the guy,” the statement says.
