MORROW, Ga. – A man was killed after he was allegedly stabbed in the neck with a butcher knife at an apartment in Morrow, according to the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office.

Zarak Depriest Richardson was found dead in an apartment at the Windsor Landing complex on Southlake Parkway early Monday. Deputies found him after calls about a domestic dispute.

Clayton County homicide detectives arrested Tahara Monica Golston for murder after an investigation Monday morning.

Golston is being held without bond at the Clayton County Detention Center.

This comes just over a week after another deadly stabbing in Clayton County. Jermaine Jones, 30, is accused of stabbing his wife to death on Sept. 26 at their home in Forest Park.
