25 year Juan Lorenzo Rodriguez, charged with stabbing Gustaro Sanchez over a year ago at Pirtle's Nursery, was indicted by the DeKalb County Grand Jury this week on a charge of attempted second degree murder.

The warrant, at the time of Rodriguez' arrest in May states that " On October 28th, 2007 at Pirtle's Nursery on Highway 146 in DeKalb County, Rodriguez did stab Gustaro Sanchez several times in the neck, abdomen, and head and cut him twice across the abdomen and left him for dead."

Sheriff Patrick Ray says the fight was over a female and Sanchez was cut with a knife.
Sanchez was found in the driveway of a barracks where migrant workers reside at Pirtle's Nursery .According to Sheriff Ray, someone at the barracks heard Sanchez screaming in pain, discovered him lying in the driveway, and called 911

Sanchez, who has apparently recovered from the attack, suffered numerous stab wounds to his chest, back, and head area. He was transported by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital and then flown by Life Flight to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville in critical condition

Rodriguez, a resident of 500 Skyline Drive, McMinnville, was arrested in May of this year on other charges by Warren County Sheriff's Investigators after he attempted to allude law enforcement officers there. Rodriguez was later turned over to DeKalb County authorities.
