Southwest Virginia man faces second-degree murder charge in wake of stabbing

ABINGDON, Va. — Alcohol use appears to be a factor in a stabbing death during an altercation at 12:15 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex in Damascus, the Washington County, Va., Sheriff’s Office said.

Upon arrival at the 300 building of Settlers Point Apartments, police found Chester William Brown, 47, of the apartments, had suffered stab wounds to the head and body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

David Allen Widener, 38, also of the apartment complex, was charged with second-degree murder. He was also charged with felonious assault after police say he assaulted a sheriff’s deputy during the investigation. He is being held without bond in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon.
