Suspect indicted in Augusta plasma center slaying
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A grand jury has indicted Keunte Green in the plasma center killing back in January.
Green is facing two felony murder charges, a malice murder charge and a charge for possessing a knife during a felony.
His case will now head to trial.
The stabbing happened inside the Biotest Plasma Center on Peach Orchard Road around 8:20 p.m. Jan. 22.
Police say green stabbed 42-year-old David Boykin several times with a 2-foot machete.
Investigators say it stemmed from “some sort of verbal altercation” between Green and Boykin that erupted into a full-on fight.
Green allegedly fled the scene, but was found a short time later.
Previous incident reports show Green had been carrying a machete on his person since June 2019. In the June incident, Green told the responding officer he was homeless and carried the machete because the “streets were dangerous.”
