A Midway teenager died Saturday night after being stabbed several times in the Fleming area, according to the incident report. Another young man has been charged with murder in the case.
According to the report filed by Liberty County Sheriff's Office Deputy Shane Brazier, he was dispatched to the 300 block of Cook Road on a call about an assault, but instead found Terry Floyd, 19, being treated by emergency medical personnel for stab wounds.
The sheriff's office reported today that Travon Walthour was taken into custody Sunday and has been charged with murder and aggravated assault. A third person was reportedly taken into custody as a person of interest on Tuesday.
In his report, Brazier said he talked with a 17-year-old who lives on Cook Road, and learned Floyd and the teen had allegedly arranged the purchase of eight ounces of marijuana from a man identified as Walthour for $600.
It is alleged that Walthour arrived in a black, four-door vehicle with two other men. When the transaction was completed, Walthour allegedly drove down the road a short way, turned around and returned to where Floyd and the 17-year-old where standing.
According to the teen, Walthour got out of the vehicle and jumped on Floyd. One of the passengers also got out brandishing a handgun at the teen and ordered him to lie down in a ditch. The teen told Brazier the assailant told him "to relax it was only going to take a minute," as he went through his back pocket, taking the teen's wallet which contained his driver's license, debit cards and other documents. After taking his wallet, the alleged assailants got back into the vehicle and drove off.
The teen told the deputy Floyd was struggling to breath.
Floyd, who succumbed to his wounds, was pronounced dead at the scene.
