Cortland man accused in Burger King stabbing has hearing


A Cortland man accused of stabbing a 17-year-old appeared in municipal court here Wednesday.

Daniel Lee Kelley, 19, waived his right to a preliminary hearing before Judge Kurt Latell who bound him over to Trumbull County Common Pleas Court for further proceedings.

Kelley is facing a felonious assault charge after police said he stabbed a juvenile outside Burger King on South State Street on Jan. 16.

Latell lowered Kelley’s bond from $50,000 to $15,000, with 10 percent cash surety. He said Kelley must remain on house arrest if he is bailed out. Kelley is in the Trumbull County Jail.
