SPENCER – The case involving the Jan. 29 stabbing death of Charles ěChop-Chopî Stanley Jackson has been closed after police say Jackson was stabbed in self-defense.
Jackson and another man got into an argument at the home of Teshia Carr, 706 Third St., and they both stabbed each other, police said. The other man involved in the fight was not seriously injured. Other than Jackson, police have not released the names of anyone else involved in the incident.
Jackson was found on the porch of a Hudson Avenue home after 2 a.m., bleeding. He later died at Rowan Regional Medical Center. The N.C. Medical Examinerís office found that Jackson was stabbed in the right jugular vein and the abdomen.
The Spencer Police Department said an ěextensive investigationî by their department and the N.C. SBI found no criminal charges were needed.
Stanleyís mother, Nora Mae Jackson Dowd, said Jackson, a handyman by day, enjoyed cooking and watching the Dallas Cowboys in his downtime, and said she never knew him to be a violent person. Dowd was not reachable for a comment on the findings of the case.
