BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - A man who was stabbed in Clermont County has been indicted after it was determined the stabber acted in self-defense.

The stabbing occurred on Feb. 3 in Amelia. Beth Lee reported her estranged and soon to be ex husband, Michael Lee, 35, had been stabbed. Lee had an approximate 3-inch laceration to his left side/upper torso. He was air-lifted to the hospital, but is expected to recover from his injuries.

Grimardy Vazquez Sanchez, 26, who was home with Beth Lee at the time of the stabbing, was identified as the person who caused the knife wound.

Beth Lee stated that  Michael Lee had forced his way into her residence and that Sanchez acted in self defense.

A Clermont County Grand Jury ended up returning an indictment against Michael Lee for aggravated burglary, domestic violence and menacing by stalking.

Lee is still at University Hospital recovering from his stab wound, and will be taken to the Clermont County Jail when he is released from the hospital.

Grimardy Sanchez will not be charged or indicted based upon the investigative findings and assessment by the Clermont County Prosecutor's Office.
