Warren County Report
On August 14, 2012 at 5:47 p.m. the Warren County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call advising of a stabbing in progress at the school bus stop, pull-off area at the entrance to the Apple Mountain Subdivision on Apple Mountain Road. When deputies arrived on scene they found bystanders treating a white female who had multiple stab wounds.
In a WCSO press release the following day, the female victim was identified as Lakisha Henry, 33 years of age, with the last known address of 90 Rambo Court, Linden, VA. Deputies also located the suspect, identified as Ricky Brian Henry, white male, 32, and the husband of the victim, who was subdued by bystanders at the scene.
Lakisha Henry was treated at the scene by medical personnel. She was then transferred by helicopter to INOVA Hospital in Fairfax where she was still in Intensive Care, listed in critical condition the day after the attack. Mrs. Henry suffered numerous stab wounds to her entire body, the WCSO press release reported.
Initial information received by this reporter indicated the victim was putting children into a van at the Apple Mountain Road bus stop/pull over at the time she was attacked by her husband; and that Ricky Henry was subdued at the scene by three males present at the time of the attack.
Ricky Henry was taken into custody by the deputies on scene “without incident,” the Aug. 15 press release reported. Ricky Henry’s “last known address” was also reported as 90 Rambo Court, Linden, VA.
According to Sheriff Daniel McEathron, Henry was serving a sentence on drug related charges and was in the Warren County Jail’s Work Release Home Electronic Monitoring Program at the time of the attack. It was not immediately clear if either or both the assailant and victim were currently utilizing the Rambo Court home address at the time of the attack.
Ricky Henry was transported to Warren Memorial Hospital and was treated for minor injuries he suffered during the incident. Henry was released from the hospital and transported to the Warren County Jail where he was served two arrest warrants: one for attempted first degree murder and the other for aggravated malicious wounding of Lakisha Henry.
Ricky Henry is being held without bond on both charges and his next court date is set for August 17, 2012 at 10 a.m. in Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court.
