A man is facing attempted murder charges after he allegedly stabbed another man on Lindsey Bridge Road Friday evening.



According to Covington County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy David Anderson, deputies were dispatched to a residence on Lindsey Bridge Road to a domestic disturbance that had turned physical.

“Upon arrival deputies found a white male lying on the ground bleeding from an apparent wound in the chest area caused by a knife,” he said.

The male was identified as Morgan Riley, 57, of Lindsey Bridge Road.

Fifty-one-year-old Robert Allen Yovichin, who also lives at the residence, was charged with attempted murder and is being held in the Covington County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

Anderson said that Riley was transported to Andalusia Regional Hospital and later to a hospital in Pensacola by an air ambulance.
