Forman was wanted on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to Aiken County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Eric M. Abdullah.
The stabbing was reported around 6:30 a.m. June 1 in the 560 Shiloh Heights Road when a 911 caller told dispatchers she and her friend were hurt in an assault by a man.
Deputies found Bryson Washington, 22, of Aiken, unresponsive in a bedroom, and he was later pronounced dead.
The woman was taken to a local hospital with laceration injuries. An infant in the home was not injured.
The sheriff’s agency said earlier this week that investigators had identified Forman as the suspect in the incident.
