Man Arrested For Attempted Murder
Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputies have located and arrested a man wanted for an attempted murder charge.
Gregory Drake Eaves, 29, was wanted for attempted murder, first-degree burglary, and larceny.
Deputies say Eaves attacked Dennis Cochran Sr. with a baseball bat at his home in Ellenboro Saturday night.
Cochran first refused treatment by EMS, but at 1:27 a.m. Sunday, Cochran called 911 requesting to be transported to the hospital.
Doctors determined that Cochran had sustained life-threatening head injuries and transferred him to Mission Hospital in Asheville for treatment. Cochran was listed in Critical Condition on Sunday night.
Cochran's neighbors tell News 13 he was always friendly and they are very surprised to hear what happened to him.
