CONCORD, NC (WJZY) - A man called 9-1-1 saying that he had stabbed his wife.
The Concord Police Department is investigating after 61-year-old Stanly Jenkins of Concord stabbed his wife, Stephanie Wallace Jenkins, at 351 Lincoln Street around 1:08 a.m. on Saturday, authorities say.
When emergency crews arrived to the home, they discovered Stephanie Jenkins' body. Stanly Jenkins was then taken into custody.
He has been charged with one count of murder and placed into the Cabarrus County Jail under no bond.
FOX 46 Charlotte spoke with Stephanie’s daughters who have a message for anyone in an abusive relationship.
"Just because they say they love you, that ain’t true,” said Marquita Wallace. “Love don’t hurt. Love don’t kill.”
Wallace knew her mother was in a dangerous relationship but never thought Stanly Jenkins would go this far. Marquita and her sister Latasha Wallace got a 2:00 AM call from police that someone in the family house on Lincoln Street was stabbed. When the sisters arrived, they found police cars and their mother’s body, dead inside her home. The sisters tell Fox46 Charlotte they are still in shock.
“If that’s something you are going through please get yourself out,” said Marquita Wallace. “I wish my momma would have gotten herself out because we are hurt, to the core.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Concord Police Department at 704-920-5000.
