A Webster County man accused of attempted murder was held over for the grand jury Tuesday after a preliminary hearing found probable cause on all counts in his case.

Sean Michael Bostick, 25 of Slaughters, faces the attempted murder charge after a domestic incident call Dec. 6, which led Webster County Sheriff’s deputies to the Hwy. 41 residence where Bostick lived with his wife.

Bostick also faces four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.

His case will be presented to the Webster Grand Jury on Jan. 9.

According to a release from the Webster County Sheriff’s Office, a 911 call came in at approximately 7:00 p.m., with the woman on the line claiming, “He’s gonna kill me! I need you here now!”

Deputies responded, finding four children alone at the address. Their ages ranged from 7 years old to 2 years old.

A search of the house and property found no one else at home, but a short time later Bostick and his wife arrived in a small black vehicle. Bostick’s wife exhibited clear signs of having been beaten.

During questioning, the wife claimed Bostick had struck her in

Bostick told the deputies he did not remember what he had done with the knife.
