Donnie Odom Jr.
The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a stabbing that occurred last night at 320 Old Friar Road in Aiken. Shanna Ard, 27, told investigators she was asleep in the bed when her father Donnie Odom Jr. woke her and demanded Shanna go to a relative’s house to get him some prescription medication. When she refused, the suspect stabbed her five times before fleeing the home. Deputies found the suspect’s vehicle wrecked a short distance away, and the suspect was caught a half-mile from the vehicle. Odom, 46, will be charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. The victim was transported to MCG and has since been treated and released.
