Police: Greenville Man Dies After Domestic Dispute

Lawmen in Martin County say no arrests have yet been made in the death of a Greenville man Tuesday.

Robersonville police say Michael Nichols died from multiple stab wounds after they say he came into a home on West Greene Street around 1:00 a.m. Captain Phillip Lee says the two people inside the home and Nichols had a confrontation.

Lee says the homeowner, Angela Staton, was the victim's former girlfriend and that both she and her current boyfriend, Jemell Phillips, have been questioned.

Nichols died later at Martin General Hospital.

    People didn't stir after dark. Only criminals were out at night after 9 P.M. ...sure made it easy to spot the bad guys. Ah, the good ol' days!

    That's the answer, but even better everyone should be in bed by nine. Nevermind if they are working just stop what they are doing and go to bed. Glad you are GOD and you know when everyone is going to die.

    So sad, wish people would stop and think, I'm sure they are already sad and upset of what is to come now.

    Ya know, people's life expectancy would go up if they would just go to bed by 11PM. All of these stories are "early morning," 1Am, 2Am etc.
