WHEELING -

UPDATE:

Robert Glenn Robertson  who is charged with attempted murder ,appeared before Ohio County Magistrate Harry Radcliffe for a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning.

Robertson's attorney asked for continuance in the case because the investigation is still ongoing.

The state appointed prosecuting attorney agreed, saying he thought both sides needed more time to finish investigations.

Radcliffe granted the motion to continue the case. Radcliffe also continued bond at $500,000. Robertson was taken back to the Northern Regional Jail.

 

UPDATE:

Robert Glenn Robertson, who is being charged with attempted murder, was arraigned in front of Magistrate Harry Radcliffe Monday and his bond was set at $500,000.

Robertson appeared through video arraignment for his initial appearance from Northern Regional Jail.

This all stems from an incident late Saturday night when Robertson allegedly stabbed a Cleveland man in the neck and then shot him, leaving him in critical condition in a Pittsburgh Hospital.

If found guilty Robertson faces anywhere from 3-15 years behind bars.

Robertson is also wanted out of Ohio for failing to appear for an arraignment for a theft charge.

He will only be held on that charge if he were to post bond on the attempted murder charges.

  

UPDATE:

The man wanted in connection to a stabbing and shooting incident late Saturday night has turned himself in to Wheeling Police.

According to Deputy Chief Marty Kimball, Robert Robertson turned himself in Sunday evening.

Robertson will be fingerprinted, processed and transported to Northern Regional Jail.

Kimball said Robertson will be arraigned Monday morning on charges of attempted murder.

  


 

UPDATE:

The shooting erupted at 225 Washington Avenue on the second floor of the apartment. When police arrived, the victim had been taken to the first floor.

Robertson, also known by the alias "KO," has a history of drug offenses according to police.

The victim, a 40-year-old Cleveland man, is in critical condition in a Pittsburgh hospital. His name is not being released at this time.
