DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was indicted Friday for trying to kill his wife and stepson.

Police say Stanley Wheatley stabbed the two earlier this month. They say he then tried to get away by taking off in a van, but eventually crashed into a gas station.

He is now in the Montgomery County Jail charged with attempted murder, assault and domestic violence.

Wheatley is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
