A North Carolina man is accused of fatally stabbing his grandfather and injuring his grandmother, police say.
Randolph County Sheriff’s deputies received information about a possible stabbing victim at a house on Emmanuel Church Street in Asheboro on April 3, according to the agency.
When deputies arrived, authorities found a dead man suffering from a stab wound, according to the sheriff's office. An initial investigation reveals that Brian Cody King, 25, stabbed the victim and then left the house with a woman.
Several hours later, the woman was dropped off in Thomasville, where she called 911, according to police.
Police later identified the victim and King's grandfather and the woman as his grandmother. Authorities have not released the reason why King allegedly attacked his grandparents.
The dead man was identified as Harold Stephen King, 74. The grandmother is currently being treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries she sustained during the incident.
King was on the run for a few hours while police searched for him. He was arrested early Sunday morning on a murder charge, according to the sheriff's office.
