A man has arrested in the stabbing death of 41-year-old Christopher Cauley, George County Sheriff Keith Havard said in a press release.
The stabbing happened Tuesday in the Barton/Basin Community near Salem Campground Road.
The sheriff’s department said Wednesday it was looking for Aaron Jeffery Gill, 24, and Christina Len Pierce, 26, in connection with the incident.

Gill was arrested on a homicide charge and he received a $1 million bond set by Judge Jessie Underwood.
Pierce was detained for questioning and then released, pending further investigation, Havard said.
