While an investigation into the incident is ongoing, detectives believe the stabbing followed a domestic dispute.
It was one of two deadly domestic incidents in metro Atlanta over the weekend.
Randy Bernard Young shot his ex-girlfriend multiple times and killed her Sunday morning as she tried to pick up personal items from an apartment she shared with him, Clayton County police said.
“Prior to arriving at the location, it is known that she was involved in a verbal altercation with the suspect over the couple breaking up and her decision to move out of the residence,” police spokeswoman Sgt. Ashanti Marbury said.
Young was taken into custody about five hours after he ran from the shooting scene. During that time, authorities said he stabbed a police dog.
