NC- Man stabbed Monday; housemate arrested

7-8-2008 North Carolina:

RALEIGH - A man was fatally stabbed at his home Monday night, and a man who shared the residence has been charged with his murder.

Police found Anthony Patrick Graves, 43, about 9:45 p.m. when they responded to a call about a stabbing at his home at 734 South State St. Graves died later at WakeMed, police reported.

Travis Glenn McDougal, 31, of the same address was arrested at the scene without incident, said Police Spokesman Jim Sughrue.

Sughrue declined to discuss the nature of the relationship between Graves and McDougal, but he said the two men had a domestic dispute.

"The dispute turned into a physical altercation, " Sughrue said. "The stabbing was the end result of the argument."

Both men have criminal histories in Wake and Johnston counties, state records show.

Graves was required by Wake County authorities to register as a sex offender in 1992 when he was convicted of felony indecent liberties with a child and felony second degree sexual offense, court records show. Graves' criminal background also includes convictions for assault on a law officer, court records show.

McDougal has past convictions in Wake and Johnston counties for simple assault, probation violations, misdemeanor larceny, assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a government official, shoplifting, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, felony malicious conduct by a prisoner, assault inflicting serious injury, felony probation violation, second degree burglary and common law robbery, court records show.

Police transported McDougal to the Wake County jail, where he is being held without bail, a jail spokeswoman said today.

Police are continuing to investigate, Sughrue said. ..News Source.. by Thomasi McDonald, Staff Writer
