More charges have been filed against a Farmington woman following a stabbing at her residence on Sept. 10.

Kayla Bracken, 26, of Farmington Road, originally was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

On Sept. 19, she was charged by the Davie County Sheriff’s Department with attempted first-degree murder, felony conspiracy, first-degree kidnapping, possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance. She was placed in the Davie Detention Center in lieu of a $150,000 bond.

Authorities are looking for Samuel Robert Watson III, 27, whose last address was 518 Junction Road, Mocksville, another suspect in the case. He last worked at Bojangle’s in Mocksville, said Sheriff J.D. Hartman. Watson was at the home the night of the incident and was still there when deputies arrived.

They are accused of stabbing Gregory York of Yadkin County at her trailer early that morning. York underwent multiple surgeries, including one to have a part of a lung removed, said Hartman. York has since been released from the hospital.

Hartman said the new charges are the result of interviews with the victims and others.
