Stabbing death under investigation

By BUSTER WOLFE,

Hattiesburg Police detectives are continuing to investigate the stabbing death of a man last Friday. A suspect has been charged with first-degree murder in the incident.

Jonicqua Moffet was taken into custody and charged after officers were called to investigate a stabbing in the 900 Block of Dabbs Street. Officers saw a man lying on the ground with what appeared to be a stab wound to the left side of his body. He was transported by ambulance, but he later died from his injuries.

Officers said the reason for the incident stemmed from a fight between the two people who were in a dating relationship.
