Man charged with murder after stabbing, Davie County deputies say

A man has been arrested and charged with murder following a fatal stabbing late night in Mocksville, according to Davie County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

On Friday around 11:56 p.m., deputies said they were dispatched to the 200 block of Gwyn Street on reports of a stabbing.

When they arrived, officials said they found a man, later identified as 62-year-old Mark Randall Dukes, suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies said the suspect, identified as 32-year-old Danny Earl Carter, left the residence on foot but was arrested in Mocksville around 9 a.m. Saturday. He was charged with murder.

Deputies said Carter and Dukes knew each other and may have been involved in a disturbance at the time of the stabbing.
