WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide that happened last night.

A woman called 911 shortly after 6 p.m. saying she was afraid her brother would harm their stepfather.

Deputies responded to the 200 block of Jamaica Drive where they met Ryan Tambis, 23, at the door. Authorities say they noticed blood on his hands while talking to him and saw a man lying on the floor suffering from a stab wound.

Raymond Hill, 78, was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Tambis was arrested and is now at the New Hanover Detention Facility with no bond. He is charged with first degree murder.
