A man accused of domestic violence fatally stabbed himself yesterday afternoon in Harford County after being shot by a state trooper, police said.

Christopher G. Sikalis, 26, of Kingsville, whose wife had obtained a protective order against him Thursday, was armed with a large knife and was walking in the 1700 block of Singer Road in Abingdon about 4:30 p.m. when Tfc. Sean T. Nevin spotted him, said Greg Shipley, a state police spokesman.

Nevin ordered Sikalis to drop the knife, then shot him in both legs when the man threatened him with the weapon, Shipley said. Sikalis then sat up and plunged the knife into his neck, severing his carotid artery, the spokesman said.

Sikalis died shortly after 6 p.m. at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
