The critically injured man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he died from his injuries, McDonald said. Investigators later determined the man, identified as Gregory James, had been stabbed.
“Said accused did attack said victim with a knife causing said victim’s death,” Russell’s warrant states. “Said accused’s ex-girlfriend witnessed the murder.”
Russell, 28, was arrested later Tuesday morning and charged with murder and aggravated assault, Cobb jail records show. He was being held without bond Wednesday.
The investigation into the death is still underway, according to police. No further details were released.
