Dayton police responded on the evening of May 16 to a report of a stabbing at a convenience store in the 1000 block of Troy Street.

The victim, Bart Adkins, told officers that Vance had stabbed him, according to a release from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

Adkins was taken to a local hospital, where he died several hours later during surgery.

Further investigation revealed that Vance and Adkins were involved in an argument when Vance “pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest,” he release stated.

Vance was booked into the Montgomery County Jail Wednesday in an unrelated case. Misdemeanor aggravated menacing and menacing charges were filed against him Thursday in Dayton Municipal Court, court records show.
