The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says deputies arrested a man accused of stabbing a woman near a truck stop in Corbin. Police said the woman was stabbed near the Love’s Travel Stop off I-75 Exit 29. Investigators say the woman was stabbed once in the chest and once in the back, puncturing one of her lungs. Police say the man ran away into a wooded area near the truck stop. The man later came out of the woods and hid behind a nearby truck. A Florida truck driver was able to help police nab the man, later identified as 25 year old Brandon Hoskins of Emmalena, Ky. Officers found a knife and a pipe containing meth in Hoskin’s possession. They also found a red Volkswagon, belonging to Hoskins and the woman, abandoned due to mechanical problems. Witnesses say Hoskins and woman were arguing when he stabbed her.
