Man indicted in 2018 Cobb stabbing death

A Cobb County grand jury has indicted an Atlanta man in connection to the November 2018 stabbing death of a Cobb resident.

Dunte Lamont Holmes was indicted Friday on one count each of malice murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery and two counts each of felony murder.

Holmes, 22, is accused of fatally stabbing Mitchell Jones on Nov. 23, 2018. Cobb police were dispatched to a call of the stabbing at a townhouse around 9:30 p.m. in the 3400 block of Laurie Joe Drive, which is off Hurt Road in Marietta.

According to the indictment, Jones suffered injuries to his face, head, torso and extremities in the alleged attack.

On April 4, nearly five months after Jones’ death, Cobb police obtained warrants for Holmes’ arrest, which states he allegedly used a “cutting type instrument” to inflict several sharp fatal blows on the victim.

Holmes was booked into the Cobb County jail April 12 and remains held without bond. Superior Court records show no arraignment date has been scheduled for Holmes. Atlanta attorney Jonathan Melnick is representing Holmes. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reached out to Melnick for a comment about the indictment and is waiting to hear back.
