Three teens arrested Thursday in the stabbing death of a man told Jacksonville police they needed gas money, homicide Lt. Larry Schmitt said during a news conference Friday.

The victim, 49-year-old Grady Williamson, was stabbed in the chest Monday as he walked in the 1300 block of Oakhurst Avenue. He was taken to Shands Jacksonville where he died from his injuries.

Witnesses told police they saw a white Chevrolet Malibu fleeing the area.

An off-duty police officer spotted a car matching that description Thursday in the 3000 block of Myrtle Avenue, Schmitt said.

Officers stopped that car and arrested Thomas D. Partlow, 16, of the 9200 block of Soutel Drive, Gibson Wright III, 17, of the 400 block of West 23rd Street, and Marvin Tony Clark, 15, of the 3000 block of Hickorynut Street.

During a subsequent interview with detectives, Partlow said the teens had been in need of gas money when they spotted the victim, who they did not know, Schmitt said. Williamson was stabbed once in the chest and robbed of all he had, $3, the arrest report said. Partlow is accused of doing the stabbing.

All three teens have been jailed on charges of murder while committing a felony.

Several were found to have images of young children performing sexual acts, the arrest report said.

Williams completed a medical residency at Shands Jacksonville in June but is not currently affiliated with the hospital or the University of Florida, a Shands Jacksonville spokesman said in an e-mail.

Jacksonville police on Friday arrested Marshall Dale Cole IV, 42, on a charge of murder in the death of 3-month-old Marcus Cole.

The infant wasn't breathing when authorities were called to the Volley Drive home March 22. He was taken to a hospital and died three days later, the arrest report said.

Both parents told police the boy had been spitting up but nothing else was noticeably wrong before Cole put him to bed. He was alone in the bedroom with the child for at least 30 minutes, both parents told police in the arrest report. Cole said he heard a noise and noticed Marcus wasn't breathing.

When the boy's mother, Dioscora Cole, checked on them, she told police she found Marshall Cole sitting beside him but not trying to help him in any way. …
