Fugitive Arrested in White Sulphur Springs

By admin - Posted on 08 November 2011

On Tuesday, November 8, 2011, Deputies from the Meagher County Sheriff's Office arrested Mark Logan.

Logan was wanted in connection with a stabbing that occurred in Gallatin County on October 23, 2011. He had been on the run since the incident.

Logan is charged with Assault with a Weapon and is being held on $100,000 bond.

The Meagher County Sheriff's Office received information Logan might be in the area. Deputies found him at the Tenderfoot laundry mat. He was taken into custody without incident.

Logan has a prior conviction for manslaughter in Kentucky.

Two out of three Kentucky judges in 2001 ruled against Mark Paul Logan, who appealed his 2000 conviction and 10-year prison sentence, according to a McCracken County, Ky., Circuit Court document.

The document gives some detail into the 1998 incident that landed Logan in a Kentucky prison for several years before he was released on parole in October 2003.

According to the appeal court document:

Logan was charged with murder on Oct. 15, 1998, after his co-worker for a towboat company was found dead outside a Peducah, Ky., motel room.

The two were sharing a room there after a 30-day work assignment and had been drinking heavily the night before Shane Gregory was found dead.

After they returned to their motel room, the two men got into a fight during which Gregory was wounded and later “bled to death from a single stab wound to the neck.”

Police found Logan at his brother’s house later that day “with blood on his clothing and they removed from his pocket a knife with blood stains.”

Testifying during his 2000 jury trial, Logan “admitted that he pulled the knife to keep Gregory at bay. However, (Logan) claimed that he cut Gregory only when Gregory attacked him again.”

The jury found Logan guilty of second-degree manslaughter and sentenced him to 10 years, though they could have opted to find him guilty of murder.

Logan was paroled in 2003 and came to Bozeman about a month later, said Bob Anez, spokesman for the Montana Department of Corrections. Bozeman parole officers supervised Logan until October 2008.

Gallatin County authorities issued a $100,000 felony arrest warrant last week for Logan, 39, charging him with assault with a weapon. He is accused of stabbing a man outside Stacey’s Bar and Steakhouse shortly after midnight on Oct. 23.

The 32-year-old man suffered lung damage after being stabbed six times with a hunting knife, the charging document states.
