Man stabbed to death in Ozark County

An Ozark County man has reportedly been stabbed to death at a residence near the Arkansas state line. The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Robert Christian Chambers of Gainesville.

Ozark County Sheriff Darrin Reed says the stabbing was reported at a residence in Clarkridge at 4 Wednesday morning. Chambers was pronounced dead at the scene. The sheriff says persons of interest are being interviewed.

The Ozark County Times is reporting Chambers was the victim of a stabbing in October 2017. Charges were dismissed in that case.  Reed tells the Times the 2017 case does not appear to be related to Wednesday’s fatality.

Reed says the stabbing apparently occurred when one of those involved arrived at the residence to pick up some property. An argument and fight broke out, and the stabbing occurred. 

An autopsy will be scheduled this week.
