Marcia Chance fatally stabbed by son Varian Alexander Hibbert on Thanksgiving


A Georgia woman was fatally stabbed by her son on Thanksgiving, police said.

Marcia Chance, 42, was discovered lifeless with stab wounds inside a Lawrenceville home by cops responding to a report of a domestic-related assault just before noon Thursday, Gwinnett County police said in a statement.

Chance’s 18-year-old son, Varian Alexander Hibbert, was arrested by cops at the scene on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a knife during the commission of a felony, police said.

“Detectives are currently investigating the motive for the assault,” department officials said, adding there was no ongoing threat to the public.

A message seeking additional comment on what led up to the deadly holiday stabbing was not immediately returned early Friday.

Hibbert remains held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center, records show. It’s unclear if he’s hired an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Hibbert was arrested in August on charges of criminal property damage and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers by use of threats or violence, WAGA-TV reported.

He was busted on similar charges roughly two weeks later, the station reported. It’s unclear if Chance was somehow linked to those incidents.

“I was really shocked by that,” neighbor Cameron Boyd told WAGA-TV of the Thanksgiving Day slaying. “I ain’t think [Hibbert] was really capable of doing something like that … It’s your mom and it’s on Thanksgiving, like that’s the crazier part.”

Another relative inside the family’s home called 911 after Chance was stabbed, according to the station.

“It’s devastating,” neighbor Henriette Robinson said. “Never thought that, you know, it’d come to this.”

Robinson said she had previously spotted Hibbert “talking to himself” outside and accused him of trying to enter her home.

“It’s really disturbing,” Robinson told WAGA-TV. “I mean, you know, I feel for this mother.”
