Law enforcement responds to concerns of preferential treatment in Post stabbing case

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The Garza County sheriff's department says the potential suspect in a Sunday night stabbing claims self defense.

Hank Berkley, 19, was stabbed multiple times and a bloody screwdriver was found after the incident. Berkley shared his story with KCBD NewsChannel 11 on Tuesday and two witnesses also described the incident.

Berkley showed us his wounds including a puncture to the left side of his chest.  According to his family, doctors at UMC said that the wound was only two inches from his heart.

Berkley and other members of his family have raised concerns that the potential suspect has been given preferential treatment. In response to the question of preferential treatment, the Garza County Chief Deputy, Tommy Binford, says no, "not at all."

The Chief Deputy says he hopes to have a case presented to either the District Attorney or the County Attorney by the end of the week.
