Man stabbed and killed, suspect in jail in Lincolnton

LINCOLNTON, NC (WBTV) - A Newton man was stabbed and killed at a Lincoln County home Friday night. Sheriff's deputies have arrested another man for his murder.

Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies were called to 346 Grandview Lane, Lincolnton at 9:20 p.m. When they arrived, officers found Donald Lee Hoyle, Jr., 31, of 1310 Clark's Creek Circle, Newton, NC lying on the ground in front of the mobile home.

A man standing beside Hoyle told officers Gary Farmer who was inside the mobile home had stabbed him.  Officers entered the mobile home and took Farmer into custody.  Hoyle was transported to CMC-Lincoln where he died.

Detective Lt. Tim Johnson of the Major Crimes Unit said Hoyle was stabbed with an unknown sharp object in the chest area. 

Deputies had responded to an altercation at the same location around 8:45 p.m. but no one wished to press charges.

Gary Clinton Farmer, 54, of 346 Grandview Lane was charged with first-degree murder and jailed without bond.  He will have a first appearance hearing on Monday.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
