Boise (670 KBOI News) – Here’s an update to the story of the mass stabbing that happened Saturday night in West Boise.

As for the other eight victims, one child was treated and released, but the seven are still in the hospital, some with very serious or critical injuries.

Mayor Dave Bieter issued a statement, saying in part, “The thought of a happy occasion like a child’s birthday party being turned into the darkest of sorrows in such a vicious way is almost unfathomable. I know every Boisean joins me in sending our deepest condolences to her family and loved ones, as well as continued thoughts and prayers to the other eight victims recovering from their injuries.”

Meanwhile, Timmy Kinner, the LA man accused of attacking the group of party goers, is charged with 1st degree murder, and aggravated battery with a weapons enhancement. His preliminary hearing is set for July 16th.
