NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) - Two Vermont men involved in the fatal stabbing of a man at their Newport home say they were being attacked and acted in self-defense.

Police are continuing to investigate the Saturday death of 35-year-old Isaac Hunt, of Newport, at the home of 31-year-old Christian Cornelius and his 24-year-old brother Garrett.

No charges have been filed.

The Cornelius brothers tell the Orleans County Record (https://bit.ly/VE9Gm0 ) Hunt was stabbed by Christian after Hunt tried to force his way into their home by smashing a shovel through a wooden door following a dispute over money loaned to Hunt, but never repaid.

State police say an autopsy determined Hunt died after being cut in the leg.

The Cornelius brothers say they’d known Hunt for years, but his behavior had changed recently.
