CLARENCE, N.Y. (WKBW) — A 41-year-old Clarence man has been indicted in Erie County Court on charges of burglary and assault in an attack on his stepfather.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says Jonathan C. McKibben violated an order of protection when he entered the victim's home on Manor Wood Lane in Clarence on July 30. Once inside, prosecutors say he stabbed his stepfather several times.

According to deputies with the Erie County Sheriff's Office, the man called for help after he was stabbed, saying he was attacked by someone he knew. Deputies discovered McKibben walking along Sawmill Road, covered in blood.

The stepfather's injuries were not life-threatening; he was treated at Erie County Medical Center.

McKibben is being held at the Erie County Holding Center on $100,000 bail. His next court date is a pre-trial conference on November 10. If convicted of the charges in the indictment, McKibben could face up to 25 years in prison.
