A man was arrested in connection with a homicide that police are describing as domestic in nature.
Officers found Cook unconscious on the 1700 block of North Capitol Street, NE, with a stab wound to the chest on Sept. 23. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment, where he died two days later.
According to the arrest warrant, a witness said they saw Cook collapse in the street behind a parked car. The witness saw a female driver and another passenger sitting inside the car, before noticing Cook’s shirt covered in blood. The witness did not see the stabbing happen or who did it, according to the documents.
Another witness said that before the stabbing, they saw Cook and Williams argue and fight each other. Cook punched Williams and knocked him out before helping him to his feet. They walked away together around the corner out of sight from the witness.
Williams is currently being held without bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 14.
