One Dead, One Arrested After Winnsboro Stabbing


Billy Dwaine Cotton Wood County Jail

Shortly after 11:00 am on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, Winnsboro Police Officers were dispatched to Bob’s Auto Repair on East Carnegie, to a report of a man with a knife. Upon our arrival, we located a 54-year-old white male, inside the shop area, with multiple stab wounds to his upper torso. Officers found a 70-year-old white male in the parking lot and detained him. Officers determined that the 70-year-old white male, identified as Billy Dwaine Cotton, of Winnsboro, was the suspect with the knife.

Steven Wayne Lancaster, a 54-year-old employee of Bob’s Auto Repair, was transported to Christus/Mother Francis in Winnsboro and then flown to Tyler. Lancaster was pronounced dead shortly after 3:00 pm.

Cotton was placed under arrest for murder and transported to Wood County Jail. He was released after posting $50,000 bond. The investigation is still ongoing.
