Anderson is accused of killing 32-year-old Christopher King after an alcohol-fueled dispute early Sunday. Authorities say Anderson drove King from the Capital Lodge crew camp between Ray and Tioga to a Tioga hospital, where King was pronounced dead and Anderson was arrested.
Sgt. Detective Caleb Fry with the Williams County Sheriff's Office says King was stabbed four times with a hunting knife _ twice in the chest and twice in the abdomen.
