Footage Seems To Support Self Defense Claim In Stabbing

Posted: Updated:
EVERGREEN -

Authorities are asking the FBI to look at some surveillance footage of an Evergreen stabbing that happened Friday afternoon.

Flathead County Attorney Ed Corrigan says Kyle Wesley Puckett got in a fight, and eventually stabbed Scotty Lamar.

Lamar, 27, is still in the hospital recovering.

Puckett, 28, was scheduled to be sentenced next week for criminal possession of precursors to dangerous drugs after meth-making ingredients were found in his home.

Corrigan says Puckett claims he was defending himself when he attacked Lamar.

Corrigan admits they take these claims "skeptically," but footage from a local business and a knife found by Lamar's body seem to back up Puckett's story.

No new charges are yet filed and Corrigan says none will be until the investigation is over.

Puckett was let out of jail after he pled guilty last year in November, but he's back in the Flathead County Detention Center because Corrigan says Puckett smoked pot and drank alcohol while he was released on his own recognizance.

His bond is set at $25,000.
