Argument over marijuana leads to fatal stabbing

Skyler Keith Wright, 18, has been charged with murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime.

 

 

Police said a 24-year-old was killed Sunday after an argument over money owed for marijuana.

Jackson Police Chief Dennis Rushton said police were called about 7:30 p.m. to a home in the 7500 block of South Silverton Street, where they found Brennan Marshall Tucker, of Duffie Street, with stab wounds. Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said Tucker died as a result of his injuries about 9:30 p.m.

Skyler Keith Wright, 18, of Wrights Mill Road in Aiken, was found Monday morning about three blocks away, hiding in a car.

Rushton said it appears the two men were arguing because Wright owed Tucker money for a small bag of marijuana. Police believe Wright might have been staying at the Silverton Street residence where the stabbing occurred.

Wright has been charged with murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime.

Wright was previously arrested by North Augusta Department of Public Safety for drug possession in late February. In January, Aiken Department of Public Safety charged him with giving false information, no driver’s license and possession of a pistol by an underage person.
