DURHAM, N.C. — The father of a 17-year-old charged with his grandmother’s murder is talking about his jail visit with his son.

Kenton Evans told WTVD that Treyvon Evans is a good person, and just made a mistake the morning police say he stabbed 62-year-old Carolyn Hemingway to death.

The teen is also charged with stabbing his 4-year-old brother and will remain in jail without bond until his trial.

Treyvon Evans and his father recently spent some time talking in jail and Evans said his son told him he did not do it.

“I know for a fact he loved his grandmother, so how it got from the point they were supposed to be arguing to the point that she’s no longer here, I have no idea how they got to that point,” the elder Evans said.
