LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff’s detectives have charged two people following a violent assault on a man last night.

Deputies were dispatched to an assault around 11:45 p.m. Thursday at a residence in the 1000 block of Bexley Lane, Lincolnton, NC. When officers arrived they found one man in the yard bleeding from his injuries and two suspects running from the scene into a wooded area. The two suspects were detained while officers investigated the incident.

Detective M. Burgess identified the suspects as Colby Lane Powers, 26, and Casey Nicole Murphy, 29, both of Murphy, N.C. The couple had been to a residence on Bexley Lane to visit and became combative toward each other. After being told to leave the home the argument between Powers and Murphy continued in the yard of the home. The victim, in an attempt to break up the fight, came out of the residence and confronted Powers. Both suspects began fighting with the victim striking him on the body and head with a two by four piece of wood and a masonry brick. The victim was transported by Lincoln County EMS to Caromont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia for treatment of his injuries.

Powers and Murphy were charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill and inflicting serious injury. In addition, Murphy was also charged with injury to real property, possession of a controlled substance Schedule II, possession of a controlled substance Schedule VI, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Murphy was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $37,000 secured bond. Powers was jailed under a $35,000 secured bond.
