Around 2 a.m., deputies responded to the 1700 block of Fletcher’s Chapel Road in Durham.

The victim, Abraham Markham, and suspect, Morgan Gullie, were driving down New Light and Ghoston roads when an altercation occurred inside the vehicle, a news release said.

During the altercation, Gullie stabbed Markham, who later died. The two were “in a dating relationship,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Gullie initially told investigators that Markham sustained his injuries during an encounter in the parking lot of a restaurant near Durham and Creedmoor roads, which she later recounted, deputies said.

Gullie was charged with murder.
