RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh Police say a woman was seriously injured after being stabbed overnight in the same area where another stabbing occurred last Thursday.

The following day a 19-year-old was charged with murder in the stabbing incident that left one man dead and another with serious injuries, Raleigh police said.

At the time officers said they found three adults suffering from stab wounds. All three were taken to WakeMed.

One of the stabbing victims, Henry Thomas Thorpe, 52, died as a result of his injuries.

A 57-year-old man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Tyler James Underhill, 19, was at first believed to have been stabbed in the incident but investigators later determined that he had not been stabbed but he was injured.

Underhill has been charged murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury in connection with the incident. 

Police are currently investigating today’s incident and have not said the stabbing is connected to last week’s stabbing.
