His attorney has said Dennis was trying to defend himself, and intends on employing the stand your ground defense when the case comes to trial. Investigators have said they believe there was a fight prior to the stabbing that stemmed from the Lexington-Dutch Fork boy's basketball game that took place earlier in the evening.

If Dennis is able to pay the bond, he will be on home detention, meaning he can only go to work, a job, home, or his attorney's office.
