ABBEVILLE — Authorities say a dispute involving a girl led to the fatal stabbing of 17-year-old male over the weekend in Abbeville.
Henry County Sheriff William Maddox cited a dispute over a girl as part of the motive in the murder of Emmett Tyric Leqwaun Brown. Maddox also said some type of gang affiliation was likely involved, though he didn’t expand on how.
Investigators with the Henry County Sheriff’s and Abbeville Police Task Force arrested three teens on murder charges for their alleged involvement in the killing. All three suspects were released from custody after each posted $150,000 bail.
Investigators charged 17-year-old Gregory Spann, 17-year-old Marquise Barwick and 18-year-old Montrez Brown with murder in the stabbing death of Tyric Brown. Court records show Abbeville police charged all three teens with using a knife to cut and stab Tyric Brown to death on Saturday.
