Charges unlikely after Knox County student cut at school

Barbourville, KY - The principal of a southern Kentucky High School says charges are unlikely to be filed after a student suffered an injury after being cut by a knife on school grounds.

Knox Central High School Chief Tim Melton sent a letter home to parents last week saying the injury appears to have been an accident and no harm or threat was intended.

In the letter, he also wrote because the incident involved a knife, the Barbourville Police Department was contacted to assist with the investigation.
