WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed attempted murder and drug charges against a Washington state man after a weekend stabbing at a Williston hotel.

Authorities allege that 25-year-old Joshua Floyd stabbed his roommate during a fight over money. Defense attorney Nicole Foster declined comment to The Associated Press.

KXMC-TV reports that police recovered a 4-inch-long serrated knife they believe was used in the attack. Officers said they also found marijuana in Floyd’s jacket.

He was being held on $100,000 bond on misdemeanor drug charges and the felony attempted murder charge, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
