LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A Lincoln County man was charged after an apparent argument over a missing pig, police said Tuesday.

Officers with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department were called to a home in the 100 block of Eagles Landing Drive in Winfield late Monday night on a report of a domestic disturbance.  Once on the scene, police found a 38-year-old male suffering from 23 stab wounds; 22 to the back and one to the head, according to police.  

Police said the victim and his roommates were raising a pig for eventual slaughter.  The pig went missing two weeks ago and the victim suspected 22-year-old Joshua Alan Finke of taking the animal.  The unidentified victim and his roommates approached Finke about the pig, and an argument turned physical between Finke and the victim.  Police said Finke then stabbed the man multiple times.  Hospital officials believe a screwdriver was used, but no weapon was found at the home.
 
Joshua Alan Finke, who was booked into the Lincoln County Jail, is charged with felony assault.
 
The victim was released from a hospital Tuesday morning.  
 
The pig was not located, according to police.
