LIBERTY, Ohio (WKBN) – The defendant charged with stabbing another man in Liberty waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
Michael Halkiewicz’s case will now go to a Trumbull County grand jury.
Halkiewicz is charged with felonious assault in connection to a stabbing on Euclid Avenue in Liberty.
Investigators say Halkiewicz was living at the home on Euclid, and he and a man he’s been friends with for some time got into an argument that turned violent. Halkiewicz was accused of stabbing that man in the face.
