Man Charged in 2010 Lizella Stabbing Death | Crime
Bibb Sheriff's investigators have charged a 38-year-old Lizella man in the 2010 murder of William Lord.
According to a news release, David Allen Stewart was already in custody at the Bibb County jail after a November 5, 2012 arrest on burglary charges when he was served a warrant for felony murder on Friday.
Investigators say they have information connecting Stewart to Lord's murder, which led to the warrant being issued.
Lord was at home with his parents on a Friday evening in March 2010. The door bell rang and he answered it, going outside.
His parents told investigators they heard a commotion outside, and that Lord walked back in claiming he had been stabbed.
He went to his bedroom to get a pistol, walked back to the front door and collapsed. He was later pronounced dead from a stab wound to the chest.
Investigators urge anyone with information about this incident to contact Jack Cleveland at (478) 621-5650.
