LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man faces charges after prosecutors said he stabbed his brother multiple times in the face with a steak knife.

Khristopher Payne, 23, faces charges of battery and criminal recklessness. Prosecutors said one of Payne’s siblings told police he exchanged words with one of his brothers before getting the knife and stabbing him in the face.

They said the victim and a juvenile who was in the room told police the same story.

Court documents reveal doctors used 11 stitches to close two stab wounds.

Prosecutors said Payne denied stabbing him, telling police his brother cut himself.
