UPDATE 5/2/14 @ 1:40 p.m.
CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man is behind bars after calling police and telling them he stabbed someone.

Cabell County Sheriff's Deputies and West Virginia State Police responded to a home in the 4700 block of Darnell Road just before 8 a.m.

According to the criminal complaint, Alvin Ray Goodwyn, 55, of Huntington, called 911 and said he had stabbed Gregory Allen Keesee.

Goodwyn said that Keesee then got into a vehicle and left the house.

Investigators say at the house they found blood throughout the kitchen and the surrounding rooms. They also found a knife, believed to be the weapon.

A witness told investigators that Goodwyn came to her house and she asked him if he was "gonna pay me my money that he stole from me." The woman says he told her he didn't owe her anything and smacked her face.

She told investigators that her cousin, Keesee, jumped up and told Goodwyn that he wasn't going to do that to her, and that's when Alvin allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed him.

Investigators say Keesee was found at St. Mary's Medical Center with a stab wound to the left shoulder and another wound to the left arm. He has since been treated and released.

Goodywn is charged with malicious wounding.
