MCSO investigating homicide

COVINGTON — A Covington-area man is dead and a suspect in custody following a Monday afternoon homicide.

The investigation is ongoing but according to deputies and radio traffic, deputies were called to a home in the 6000 block of Myers Road around 5:30 p.m. on a disturbance.

It was then determined that a victim may have been stabbed.

When medics arrived, they requested CareFlight but soon canceled the request.

Sheriff’s detectives were called to the scene.
