NC deputies seek man accused of stabbing wife, 3 children


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Wake County deputies are looking for a man who authorities say stabbed his wife and three children Sunday night.

According to Wake County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Eric Curry, deputies were called to the 5900-block of Gamble Drive just after 10 p.m. Sunday for a reported stabbing.

Once they arrived, deputies found four victims: Brenda Barkley, 53, Adonis Barkley, 23, Aali Barkley, 22, and Aaron Barkley, 16.

Curry said Brenda and Adonis are in stable condition, while Aali and Aaron are in critical condition.

Deputies say the suspect, Carl Barkley, 54, already left the scene.

According to Curry, Aali Barkley ran to another home in the 5900 block of Gamble Drive for help. It was at this home where a deputy helped Aali.

Meanwhile, Brenda, Adonis and Aaron went to a home nearby in the 2900 block of Franks Drive, where Brenda and deputies secured the weapon Carl is suspected of using to stab them, Curry said.

Curry said there’s no known motive for the stabbing as of Sunday night.

Sheriff’s officials said Carl Barkley is believed to be driving a blue 2008 Ford F-150 with the license plate PJX-7909.
