Minister, Accused of Murder, Expected to Survive Stabbing

Tyler Police continued their search of snake-infested waters, Wednesday, for the knife that inflicted stab wounds on a local minister about to plead guilty to his wife's murder.

Authorities spent all day and night draining a lake at UT-Tyler, and searching with metal detectors for a knife that may have stabbed accused killer Michael Tabb, Tuesday.

When Tyler Police woke up this morning, doctors told them they might get a chance to interview Tabb, who is still in intensive care. Investigators hoped Tabb could elaborate on what happened to him on campus.

Meanwhile, detectives plan on searching the lake through Thursday and await approval from Tabb's attorney to interview his client.

Doctors expect Tabb is going to be okay, according to Sergeant Destry Walsworth with Tyler Police Dept.

"We have talked with Tabb's attorney, and right now we're planning to talk with Tabb and his attorney when its convenient for both of them to get together with us," Sergeant Walsworth said Wednesday.

Tyler Police are not yet sure if Tabb has the capacity to give a full interview.
