Marietta police have identified four additional suspects in connection with the stabbing death of a man in a bus station parking lot.
Four teenagers are now charged with the robbery that led to retaliation and the death of 18-year-old Marquise Carruthers, of Marietta, according to Officer David Baldwin.
Around 11:30 p.m. Sept. 28, officers were called to a grassy area near the Cobb Community Transit terminal on South Marietta Parkway, where they found Carruthers suffering from a single knife wound to the chest, Baldwin said. Carruthers was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where he later died.
