Investigators believe Eric Huffman, 41, stabbed Blevins with a large blade. According to the sheriff’s office, a witness said that Huffman killed Blevins by stabbing him with a large sword. He then jumped into his truck and ran over Blevins before colliding with a tree. He managed to escape, but was captured later. Blevins’ death was not immediately clear.

Huffman was charged with premeditated killing and aggravated assault using deadly weapons. Huffman is currently in jail without bail.

His Monday appearance was his first in court. He did not have a lawyer according to court records.
