A Marietta stabbing victim has been released from the hospital with a long road to recovery ahead of him.

On March 6, 17-year old Christopher Maas was taken into custody after allegedly stabbing 36-year old Roger Miller, Jr. in the chest and abdomen.

Miller has been in a Columbus hospital ever since, but tonight he's recovering at home.

Assistant Prosecutor Ray Dugger says, Wednesday, he filed a motion to amend the original complaint of a felonious assault to attempted murder, which would send the case to common pleas court, where Maas would be tried as an adult.

A probable cause hearing is set for March 25.
