Man Accused Of Stabbing Another Monday Night Arrested In Coeur d'Alene

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho – James Kountz, the man accused of stabbing another man Monday evening in Coeur d'Alene, is now under arrest Wednesday night.

Kountz, 56, is wanted for attempted second-degree murder after a Monday night stabbing along Highway 95 at Wilbur Ave.

Even though the victim suffered multiple stab wounds to the chest even the face, police say they're non life threatening and the victim is doing ok.

The suspect, James Kountz is a transient believed to be living in a homeless camp in Coeur d'Alene, with quite the record.    

In 1989, Kountz was arrested in California on murder charges. The charge was later reduced and he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served prison time.

Police believe Kountz has been in the area less than a year.

Since then, police have arrested him three times for aggravated assault with a knife.

His latest arrest was on May 25th for allegedly stabbing a different man.

Kountz was charged with battery.

Police say Kountz moves around quite frequently and will most likely try to blend in again with the homeless community.

For now, the Kootenai County Prosecutor has already set bond for Kountz at $100,000.
