A convicted sex offender faces a murder charge after Geneva County Sheriff’s investigators charged him with stabbing a Samson man to death over the weekend.
Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Helms said detectives charged Donnie Mullins, 52, with murder in the stabbing death of 34-year-old Jamie Elmore. Helms said the stabbing happened Saturday evening a few miles outside Samson on the side of Alabama Highway 153. Helms said the men were traveling in a vehicle driven by Mullins when a confrontation occurred between them.
“There was a verbal altercation, they pulled off to the side of the road, and a fight started between Jamie Elmore and Donnie Mullins,” Helms said. “During the fight, Jamie Elmore received multiple stab wounds to the upper torso.”
The stabbing happened around 8:30 p.m., about four miles south of Samson. Helms said a passing motorist stopped and held Mullins until deputies arrived shortly afterward. Helms said there were two other people in the vehicle who witnessed the stabbing.
Helms said deputies have taken at least two knives into evidence, including one he referred to as a pocket knife. Helms also said alcohol was found in the vehicle, but it’s unclear whether anyone was under the influence at the time of the stabbing.
Helms said investigators with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation also assisted deputies in working the county’s first murder for 2010.
Mullins remained held Monday without bond in the Geneva County Jail.
Max Motley, the Geneva County coroner, said he pronounced Elmore dead around 9:17 p.m. Saturday at Wiregrass Hospital. Motley said Elmore appeared to have died from multiple stab wounds about his body, including his stomach, chest and back.
