baker__eddieGILMER — One woman has been killed and two hospitalized with stab wounds following an Upshur County incident. The Upshur County Sheriff’s Office answered a call for help a little after 5:30 Wednesday afternoon on Ginger Road in northern Upshur County. Sheriff Anthony Betterton says when deputies arrived at the scene, two people were inside the home, suffering from multiple stab wounds. The victims told deputies that Eddie Baker, 26, of Gilmer, had doused the home in gasoline and threatened to set it on fire before he ran away. Authorities say deputies chased down Baker, arrested him, and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It was later reported to the sheriff’s office that a woman who was living with Baker at the time, Tana Fuller Warren, was missing. Deputies arrived at the missing woman’s home, where she was found dead. Baker is also being charged with murder. His bonds total $1.1 million.
