— A man is dead and another is injured following an altercation in Wayne County.

Sheriff deputies responded to a 911 call from a house at 156 Flowers Road in Mount Olive. When they arrived, they found Deon Black Graham dead in the carport. Authorities believe he was stabbed to death, but an autopsy will be conducted in Chapel Hill to determine the exact cause.

Investigators learned Terreaskus A. Davis, 23, of 137 Flowers Road, had been asked to leave by Graham earlier. Authorities said Davis returned a short time later and an altercation ensued.

Another person, Donald Wayne Graham, was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital with stab wounds. He was later transferred to Pitt Memorial Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Davis has been charged with murder and is being held without bond at the Wayne County Jail.
