Campbell County Sheriff's Office employee in stable condition after being stabbed several times

Cameron Jones is charged with attempted first-degree homicide, according to an affidavit.

LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. — A Campbell County Sheriff's Office administrative employee was stabbed by a man on Friday night, according to an affidavit from the General Session Court of Campbell County.  

54-year-old Angela Worley was "sliced" neck and stabbed in the chest and left arm by 40-year-old Cameron Jones, the affidavit said. 

Jones had contacted Worley and asked her to give him a ride to his truck that was located at the Campbell County Sheriff's Office parking lot. She told Jones that she could give him a ride, but it would have to be after work, according to the affidavit. 

While Worley was on the way to pick Jones up, she noticed him walking. Worley picked up Jones and took him to his truck. He told her that he wanted to park his truck at First Volunteer Bank and go to Tennova Hospital for a mobile crisis, the affidavit said. 

Worley told Jones that she could do that for him. When Jones got back in her vehicle, he told her that he wanted something to eat before heading to the hospital. The two of them went through a Long John Silvers. While in line, Jones attempted to point a BB gun at a worker and said that he "wanted to shoot someone with it," according to the affidavit. 

The affidavit said Worley took the BB gun from him and threw it under her seat. Jones then asked Worley to drive around while he ate his food. While Jones was talking to Worley, she figured out that Jones had already been to Tennova for a mobile crisis. 

Worley told Jones that she was taking him back to his truck and that he either needed to go home or go to the hospital. Jones then put the car in park, stated that he was going to kill Worley and began stabbing her, according to the affidavit.  

Worley was able to get out of the car and run. She was able to flag down someone driving by, who took her to Tennova. She was transported to the University of Tennessee Hospital where she remains in stable condition, the LaFollette Police Department said. 

Jones was arrested shortly after at the Tennova ER and charged with attempted first-degree homicide, according to the affidavit. 

The Campbell County Sheriff's Office did confirm with 10News that Worley is employed by them. 

Jones is being held in the Knox County jail waiting for his court appearance.
