ADA, Mich.- Seventeen-year-old Samuel King, the suspect in Wednesday’s stabbing in Ada, has been in trouble with the law before the incident.

King is accused of stabbing Forest Hills Northern Junior Nick Smith in Ada Township. The incident happened in the 6000 block of Witherbee Drive Southeast.

His most recent run-in with the law prior to this was in May, when he was charged with aggravated stalking. As part of his bond agreement, King was ordered to not have contact with his female victim and ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.
