A 55-year-old Danville man was arrested early Thursday morning after another man was found with multiple stab wounds inside a residence.

Danville Assistant Police Chief Glenn Doan said 911 received a call about the stabbing, and police responded to 416 Seabiscuit Dr. just before midnight. He said as officers were en route, they saw a red Jaguar passenger vehicle leave the area at a high rate of speed and run a stop sign.

After the vehicle was stopped, the driver was identified as Michael Sheene, 55, of Danville.

As other officers arrived on the scene, they found Lawrence Jamison, 59, of Danville, inside the apartment with multiple stab wounds. Jamison identified Sheene as the person who stabbed him, Doan said.

Jamison was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center. Doan said investigators had received an update that Jamison had surgery, but no further information was available.

According to Jeremy Cocanougher, hospital spokesperson, Jamison is listed in fair condition.

Sheene was arrested without incident and charged with first-degree burglary; first-degree assault; carrying a deadly weapon; and disregarding a stop sign.

Doan said Sheene and Jamison are acquaintances; Sheene was charged with burglary because he’s not a resident of the apartment and forced his way in.

“As far as a any type of motive, we don’t have one at this time,” Doan said.

The case is still under investigation. Sheene was being held at the Boyle County Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond Thursday.
