Huey Stanley Jr., the 22-year-old stepson of “Gypsy Sisters” star Nettie Stanley, was stabbed to death Monday night in the parking lot of a YMCA in Kingsport, Tennessee. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.

According to local station WCYB, Stanley, who was also known as Rocky, got into an altercation with a 21-year-old named Zachary Morris Gardner over a basketball game. Witnesses said the two men were seen arguing outside the YMCA before Gardner allegedly stabbed Stanley several times. Police were reportedly able to recover the weapon from the parking lot of the YMCA, which had already closed for the day when the dispute broke out.

As Gossip Cop noted above, Stanley was taken to the hospital with multiple stab wounds and pronounced dead a short time later. On Tuesday, Kingsport Police Department confirmed that Gardner had turned himself in and was charged with first-degree murder. Nettie Stanley has not yet publicly commented on the loss of her stepson. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates.
