The Detroit News

A man who turned himself in to police after a fatal stabbing at a southwest Detroit warehouse has been charged with the crime.

Jason Alan Boyce was arraigned Tuesday in 36th District Court on a charge of second degree murder.

Boyce allegedly stabbed 55-year-old Obiedious Warren Moore multiple times, killing him. The incident occurred around noon Saturday, Oct. 22 in the 100 block of Green. That’s off Fort Street, south of Interstate 75.

According to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, Boyce and the victim were arguing over the proceeds from their marijuana grow operation when Boyce picked up a sharp instrument and stabbed the victim in the neck.

According to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office, Moore died of multiple stab wounds.

Police were searching for the suspect when Boyce turned himself into detectives at the department’s downtown headquarters around 4:30 p.m. Sunday without incident.

Boyce’s probable cause hearing is scheduled for Nov. 1 at 8 a.m. and a preliminary examination is scheduled for Nov. 7 and 9 a.m. Judge Deborah Lewis Langston is presiding.

Moore was the managing partner at The Auction Block, a Detroit-based auction house that frequently auctions off items seized by the Detroit Police. The website for the business says it is temporarily closed.
