Virginia man arrested for slitting his co-worker’s throat at Walmart

A Virginia man has been arrested after allegedly slitting the throat of his Walmart co worker.

Police said that officers responded to a Walmart Distribution Center in Dinwiddie County for a fight between the two men.

“To prove this charge a prosecutor would have to prove there’s malice in cutting of the skin, so that malice only needs to exist for a split second,” Todd Stone, a legal analyst for CBS 6, said.

“The judge will look at whether he has a prior record or not, and the seriousness of the injury,” he said. “Also what the victim wants to see happen, if he is convicted. That’s sort of a victim impact, but sentencing guidelines on a malicious wounding case are pretty significant. ”

The victim only received superficial wounds and did not require hospitalization for his injuries.

But the charge of malicious wounding carries a possible sentence of 20 years.
