The Lowder’s told deputies the incident began when one of them confronted a woman and asked her why she was on their property. They said that's whey a man stabbed Daniel several times and a physical altercation between Darin and the male suspect resulted in the suspect cutting Darin slashing him several times in the face and chest.

Before the two victims were airlifted to St. John's Regional Health Center in Springfield they were able to provide investigators with a description and license plate of the vehicle the pair couple left in.

Shortly before 3:00 a.m. a Forsyth Police officer located a vehicle matching the description at a convenience store. Joseph Culverhouse and his wife Ronda, 44 were taken into custody and held at the Taney County Jail on an investigative hold.

Hickman says that interviews of both suspects revealed Ronda Culverhouse was not involved in the attacks of Darin and Daniel Lowder and was released without charges.

Joseph Culverhouse has been extradited back to Arkansas to face two counts of first-degree battery. His bond has been set at $250,000.

The Lowder's have been released from the hospital.
