3 killed in bar melee, victim's brother charged

ASHEVILLE (AP) — Three people are dead and a fourth is in critical condition after a bloody stabbing melee at a North Carolina bar, and the brother of one of the victims is charged with murder.
Asheville police on Thursday charged 52-year-old Stevie Gene Davis with first-degree murder. He’s being held in Buncombe County’s jail.
Another man was charged with aiding and abetting. Both men requested court-appointed attorneys during initial court appearances Thursday.
Police say 45-year-old Steven Wike of Wilmington was asked to leave Mike’s Side Pocket on Wednesday because he was intoxicated. He returned and stabbed three people, including Davis’ brother. Police say one of the victims was listed in critical condition at Mission Hospital.
Police say Wike ran from the bar and was caught by Stevie Davis, who stabbed him.
