Funeral services are Monday for a 2000 Central High School graduate who was stabbed to death in Atlanta just before Christmas.
Services will be at Taylor Funeral Home for Shawn Washington, 24.
His girlfriend, Adrienne Emily Hickson, 24, of Aiken, S.C., has been charged with his murder.
He was stabbed Dec. 21 in his Duluth apartment. A friend of the victim told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she and her boyfriend were sitting outside in a car when it happened. Monique Doss of Lawrenceville said Mr. Washington had gone to tell the girlfriend she needed to gather her things and leave.
Ms. Doss said he returned after about 10 minutes, bleeding and with a blank look on his face. He said the girlfriend had stabbed him and he kept saying, "I'm gone, I'm gone," as they drove to the hospital, she told the newspaper.
The Journal Constitution said Ms. Hickman, who is a law student at Howard University in Washington, D.C., found out her boyfriend had died when she went to visit him in the hospital on Christmas Day. She was arrested that day.
The couple had begun dating when they were both students at Tennessee State University. A brother of the victim told the newspaper they had a stormy relationship.
Shawn Washington drove a bread truck for the Flowers Baking Company in Lilburn.
He was a member of Trinity Baptist Church, where he served on the Usher Board.
His late grandfather was Woodroe Washington.
