ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The man accused of stabbing his cousin over a poker game found himself going back to jail Sunday morning.
Lewis Maxwell was in court on an aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charge, accused of stabbing his cousin Stephen Steward.
According to a criminal complaint, the two got into an argument when Maxwell's 14-year-old son won a poker game.
When Maxwell was giving Steward a ride home, Steward allegedly punched Maxwell's wife.
Deputies say Maxwell pulled into a gas station at Golf Course and Paradise and the fight was on.
It ended when Maxwell pulled out a knife, stabbing Steward in the face and stomach.
Sunday Maxwell found out his bond was being increased and he was going back to jail.
"So I do have to go into custody, I can lose my job, I cannot afford to lose my job sir?" Maxwell said.
"The allegations based on the complaint are serious enough that I think a higher bond is required," a judge said," a judge said. "You are not going to talk about this case."
The judge raised Maxwell's bond to $25,000.
Steward was taken to UNM Hospital and is expected to survive.
When he is released he is expected to also face battery charges.
