Jovan Hayes was stabbed and killed in Henrico County Friday night.

Hayes' mother, Karen Dabney, said she was asleep inside the family home when her son woke her up bleeding.

"I wish I had seen it coming. I wish I could’ve stopped it," she said. "I wish I could’ve done something more as a mother to help my son."

The victim's step-father, Ron Dabney, recounted Hayes was slashed on his arm and leg and was quickly losing blood prior to paramedics arriving.

He was transported to VCU Medical Center where he died during surgery.

A Facebook post allegedly led up to a deadly stabbing in Henrico County.

"There were no red flags that showed us that this will take place," Ron Dabney said. "She didn’t seem like no hostile type of person. Just average Joe hanging out with Jo'van."

"He was one of those dudes that everybody could love and he had that personality, that smile, and that charisma," Ron Dabney remembered.
