Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy has charged Aaron R. Fluker, 19 (DOB: 9/29/96), of Detroit, in connection with the homicide of Samuel Edward King, 20, of Canton, Michigan. On June 29, 2015 at approximately 9:00 a.m. King was with friends who went to Fluker's house in the 8800 block of Artesian. They drove around downtown Detroit and eventually returned to Fluker's house around 2:00 a.m. on June 30, 2015. The defendant was outside of his house when he had a verbal argument with King. It is alleged that Fluker ran into the house, got a knife, and stabbed King twice in the chest. A friend transported King to a local hospital where he died from his wounds. The police were called to the home on Artesian and Fluker was arrested.

Fluker has been charged with First Degree Murder and is expected to be arraigned on July 2, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. in 36th District Court.
