Alleged stabbing in Klamath Falls leads to attempted murder charges

Klamath Falls, Ore. – A Klamath Falls man is in jail, charged with the attempted murder of his brother.

51 year old Dale Ray Wilson is accused of attacking his brother Gregory Granillo with a knife.

The incident happened Wednesday morning at a home on Menlo Way.

The initial call to 911 was that a man had been stabbed in the neck.

Police later learned that Granillo had been stabbed in the hand.

“What did it was there was so much blood came out because I was drinking that vodka, my blood thinned.”  Explained Granillo.  “Blood was shooting out all over, and then I put my hand by my neck to he did thought he stabbed me in the throat – I did too.  I though, oh, my God – I feel I’m getting weak.”

Detective Sergeant Dennis Davenport of the Klamath Falls Police Department says statements made by Wilson were factors in the attempted murder charge…

“The fact that he had displayed the knife, and had made comments about killing somebody and actually made an attempt to do that – it doesn’t necessarily have to end in something more serious, as long at the intent was there.”

Dale Wilson was arraigned Thursday afternoon.

His bail was set at $500,000.

Granillo says he believes the assault was sparked by a discussion regarding a deceased family member.
