A 69-year-old man was stabbed to death in Charlotte, and police now say his killing was justified.
Calvin Blair Hilton, 69, was stabbed around 10 p.m. on July 11 in the 4800 block of Doris Avenue, the Observer previously reported. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Hilton’s case has since been classified as a “justified homicide,” the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced Thursday. The District Attorney’s office “has reviewed the case and concurs with the detectives’ decision not to charge anyone,” police said.
Police did not release the name of Hilton’s killer.
Family members created a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the costs of Hilton’s funeral. The campaign raised $1,700.
