STAMFORD, Vt. — A Stamford man is being held on attempted murder charges after a stabbing on Jepson Road early Thursday. 
Benjamin Taylor, 24, a resident of the Jepson Road home, was arrested by state troopers on charges of attempted murder and first-degree aggravated domestic assault. The victim, a 52-year-old man who also resided in the house, was hospitalized in critical but stable condition for treatment of injuries that are not believed at this time to be life-threatening.
According to Detective Sgt. Lauren Ronan, state police from the Shaftsbury station were called to the home at about 12:34 a.m. about an altercation and stabbing. 
Responding troopers and rescue personnel were able to locate the victim and provide medical care. Taylor was taken into custody without incident at the residence. 
He was processed at the Shaftsbury barracks and was expected to be arraigned Thursday in the Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court in Bennington on charges of attempted murder and aggravated domestic assault.
The State Police Crime Scene Search Team was expected to be at the Jepson Road home on Thursday to process the scene.
