LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A suspect in the Tuesday morning stabbing death of a hospital nurse has been formally charged with murder, and four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

22-year-old Kyron Rayshawn Templeton is charged with the stabbing death of Gail Sandidge, a nurse who was on duty at Good Shepherd Medical Center.

Another employee, Karen Bobo who was also stabbed was treated and released.

Police say one of three visitors injured during the incident is hospitalized in critical condition, another person is in good condition, and the third was treated and released. They are identified as Harris Teal, Teresa Allen,and Melissa Sims.

Templeton's arrest affidavit sheds more details on what led to the arrest of Kyron Templeton. It states, that Templeton told an officer after the alleged stabbing, that the staff at Good Shepherd Medical Center was trying to kill his mother.

Detectives interviewed a Good Shepherd employee,  who transported who is believed to be Templeton's mother, from the main hospital to ambulatory surgical center. He told detectives that Templeton was with her. After leaving them in the surgical unit, the employee went on with his duties.  The employee told investigators he was downstairs when observed a man trying to detain a black male in a room. 
 
The employee said the black man forced his way past this man and fled the location.  The employee told investigators he recognized the man running as the son of the person he had transported earlier.  The man who had been attempting to detain the man yelled that this was the person who had stabbed the people in the surgical unit.

The fatal stabbing occurred shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Ambulatory Center on Marshall Ave. in Longview.

Templeton is being held on bonds totaling 2.6 million dollars.
