Carter has previously been convicted of gun and drug charges. He was arrested in Evans’ killing on Wednesday by warrant apprehension officers.

Evans was found about 1:09 a.m. bleeding heavily in the grass on Poplar Grove. A preliminary investigation revealed he had been assaulted and stabbed, police said at the time.
