A 21-year-old Marietta man accused of killing an acquaintance with a knife and fork last month has been arrested in College Park.
Richard Smith was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of Highland Brooke Apartments at 4555 Washington Road, Marietta police spokesman Mark Bishop said.
Smith had been on the run since police charged him with fatally stabbing 42-year-old George Nelson on Nov. 15. Nelson was stabbed several times in the face, head and neck with a knife and a fork inside his apartment on Franklin Road in Marietta. Police say the suspect struck Nelson in the head and stomped on his body.
Authorities received several tips that led to Smith's arrest, Bishop said.
Police believe the suspect and victim knew each other since there was no forced entry to the apartment. A motive has not been released.
This dude MUST have been filled with rage. I mean, with a fork?
