Brandon K. Smelser, 25, Valley Falls, is facing first degree attempted murder charges. Smelser allegedly stabbed Christopher Daniel, 22, also of Valley Falls, during a fight in the parking lot of the mobile home court at 1208 Oak in Valley Falls.

The incident began around 12:40 a.m. Saturday when Smelser allegedly took issue with the type of beer Daniel brought to a party. Smelser was allegedly upset that the victim brought Natural Light beer to the party instead of another brand.

Daniel was taken to St. Francis (Hospital) where he remains. Smelser was booked into Jefferson County Jail around 2:30 a.m. where he remains.
