A judge has granted a continuance in the trial of a Williamsburg man accused of stabbing another man in December.

Trial for Bryan Grout, 41, had been scheduled to start next month. However, he waived his right to a speedy trial on Monday and Judge Mitchell Turner then granted the continuance, resetting trial for June 26.

Grout is accused of going to a Country Club Road home early the morning of Dec. 9 and attacking one of the people inside, stabbing the man multiple times. The victim was sent to the hospital with injuries to his neck, back and chest. At the time, Williamsburg Police Chief Ray Garringer described the injuries as life-threatening.

A motive has not been released but Garringer says Grout was armed when he went to the home and the victim had a no-contact order against him.

Grout is charged with Attempted Murder, 1st Degree Burglary, and 1st Offense Operating While Intoxicated. If convicted on all charges, he could be sentenced to up to 51 years in prison.
