27-year-old Joshua Raleigh was released, and then readmitted to University of Kentucky Medical Center, and died at 10:50 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the coroner’s report. Richmond Police say Raleigh was released Monday night but returned only hours later.
Glendon Eversole, 27, has been charged with assault in the stabbing but hasn’t been charged in the death at this point. Richmond Police say they’re waiting for the autopsy and toxicology reports to come back before they can make any additional charges against Eversole.
