BYRON, Ga. | Police say an argument over a cellphone escalated into a stabbing that left a 20-year-old woman dead in the central Georgia town of Byron.
Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks said Tuesday that an autopsy found that Destiny Clark bled to death after a steak knife punctured a vein in her neck.
Clark’s boyfriend, 24-year-old Ratavius Canion, is jailed in Peach County on a murder charge.
The Telegraph reports that the stabbing happened Friday afternoon at Clark’s duplex apartment in Byron.
Byron police Chief Wesley Cannon said the couple had argued about Canion planning to take a shared cellphone with him when he went out to get some pizza and the disagreement turned physical.
