WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB) --  The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office is investigating the murder of 28-year-old Ricky C. Grice Jr.

Grice was found slumped over the steering wheel of his Dodge Pickup truck about 2:29 a.m. Tuesday morning when officers arrived to investigate a disturbance call at 279 Quinn Drive. While en route, they were told that there had been a stabbing.

When officers arrived, they saw Jonathan Durden standing in a nearby driveway, with blood on his hands and holding a knife. They ordered Durden to drop the knife twice, which he did and was taken into custody.

Grice was transported to Hamilton Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

In a news release, The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office said a female was staying at the residence with Durden, and asked to leave. Grice came to give her a ride, and Durden reached into the truck's cab and began stabbing Grice.

Durden has been charged with murder and is being held at the Whitfield County Jail without bond.
