Geo. Knight, Lawnes Creek Parish, 1670-1671 court records help needed

I'm trying to pinpoint just what problem George Knight was having that necessitated depositions being taken in his behalf. One of my ancestors gave a deposition in March of 1671, but I can't seem to find just why he was giving it.

The gist of the testimony was: "The deposition of Michael Upchurch, aged fifty or there-abouts:
I asking Geo. Knight whether he had killed any deere or not. He told me, yes, one upon Christmas Eve last. And further I asked him if there were not any turkeys. He said noe but two he killed on ye further side of Chippokes Creek. And I ask him upon new years day or ye day after. I asked him where he had been below He answered coming across the creek with my wife. I asked him if he would come in. He said noe he would go home. He further saith not."

Does anyone know anything about what the charges were against Knight... or have any information on this case?

Thanks much... Mae Cox in Oklahoma
