      Man charged in hotel stabbing headed to prison

      John Mims

      A Kirksville man arrested for beating and stabbing a man in a Quincy hotel is headed to prison.

      John Mims was sentenced to five years Thursday for his role in last year's Bel-Aire Motel break-in.

      Police say Mims and two other men kicked in the door of a room at the motel and repeatedly struck twenty-one-year-old Jason Peyton with baseball bats.

      Peyton was stabbed several times.

      He was treated and released at Blessing Hospital.

      Two other men were arrested in connection with the case.
