COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 39-year-old man accused of attempted murder has been taken into custody after escaping from an Omaha hospital where he was being treated for stab wounds.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1GPTj5Y ) David Leroy McKee, of Council Bluffs, left the hospital Wednesday afternoon, and authorities were unsure of his whereabouts. He was being treated following a stabbing incident Sunday.

Officials say McKee was in fair condition Wednesday but still needed medical care. Police weren’t on scene guarding the room.

McKee was charged with attempted murder, first-degree burglary and felony domestic abuse assault in connection with a report Sunday of a man threatening his estranged wife and another woman. One woman told police that McKee broke in and tried to choke her, so she grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him.
