drove it to San Augustine, climbed through his cousin's window, and used a
kitchen knife to stab his cousin in the face.

charges of attempted murder, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and burglary

knife got broken, and the cousin managed to fight Burrell off long enough to
escape to a neighbor's house, where he called 911. The cousin also received
several abrasions, and judging by the Burrell's mug shot, he didn't emerge from
the fight unscathed.
