The man accused of stabbing an elderly woman in the neck at a mobile home park in Quincy is due in court Tuesday afternoon.
51-year-old Turhan Bowen was arrested Sunday night after the stabbing in the Town and Country Mobile Home Park off of Highway 57.
Not many details are known about what happened that led to the stabbing or about the victim, Patrica Hinton.
When deputies arrived on the scene, there were other issues processing the crime scene.
"When the deputy came to the house, everything was locked and secure, so he had to find another way into the house. He could see she was in there laying, he then made his way into the home to give aid and see if the person was still in the area," Sheriff Brent Fischer said.
Bowen was not on the scene.
He was arrested about nine o'clock Sunday night at a home in the 500 block of Sycamore Street.
He faces charges including attempted murder and aggravated robbery
