NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police have charged a 16-year-old boy for fatally stabbing his mother’s boyfriend at their Antioch apartment Saturday morning.

At her neighbor’s apartment, she saw Grier run from their apartment. When she returned to the apartment and went upstairs, she found her boyfriend, 43-year-old Timothy Jones, bleeding from multiple stab wounds.
Jones died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
