Stabbing proves fatal to Spencer man

Spencer Police and the SBI are investigating the first suspicious death of 2011 in Rowan County — a fatal stabbing that happened early Saturday morning.
Charles Stanley Jackson, 41, of Spencer, died from his injuries at Rowan Regional Medical Center. Police said no arrests had been made and no warrants for arrest had been drawn Saturday evening.
Jackson’s death came after a fight at 706 Third St., just after 2 a.m., Spencer Chief Michael James said. At least one other person was injured during the fight. James did not release any details or names Saturday.
The home belongs to Teshia Carr, who said she doesn’t remember what happened.
“ I don’t really know what happened myself,” she said. “Everything just happened so fast.”
Carr was staying with a neighbor Saturday.
On Hudson Avenue, one street over from Whitehead Avenue, neighbors gathered Saturday morning, where two houses — 211 and 210 Hudson Ave. — were also taped off and filled with investigators.
A friend of a resident on Hudson Avenue said Jackson staggered across yards and knocked on two doors before he got help and someone called 911. Jackson’s blood was found along the sidewalks and porches of the Hudson Avenue homes.
Investigators had the Third Street home marked off with crime scene tape and were still marking evidence at 6 p.m. Saturday.
According to Carr’s neighbor, three people were involved in the fight: Jackson, a man nicknamed “Bones” and a woman.
The neighbor said Jackson cut or stabbed “Bones” and the woman with his pocketknife.
The neighbor said Jackson commonly goes by the nickname “Chop Chop,” and ever since she has known Jackson he has carried a pocketknife.
At some point during the altercation, Jackson was also stabbed.
“I hate that anybody lost their life,” the neighbor said.
Jackson reportedly lived with his mother on Third Street.
A convicted felon, Jackson has a lengthy criminal past, and has been in and out of prison since 1991.
In 2008, he was convicted of felony breaking and entering and served a year and three months in prison.
Other convictions include larcenies, assaults and drug charges, and all occurred in Rowan and Davidson counties.
Anyone with information is urged to call Salisbury-Rowan Crimestoppers, 1-866-639-5245.
