GILLETTE, Wyo. — A man wanted in a fatal shooting in New Mexico has been arrested on charges of stabbing a woman in Wyoming.

Charles J. Robinson, 26, was arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder after a woman identified as his girlfriend was stabbed in Gillette Saturday.

Robinson is wanted in the shooting death of 25-year-old Thomas Manuel last month. Robinson was being held on $2.5 million bail in Wyoming. Campbell County jail officials didn’t know whether he had an attorney.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a trooper arrested Robinson shortly after the stabbing. Robinson was asleep in a vehicle about 70 miles west of Gillette.
