MYRTLE BEACH — An Andrews man has been charged with murder in the stabbing of another man outside a Myrtle Beach grocery store.

Authorities said 27-year-old Marcus Augusta Hudson was being held at the Horry County jail Monday. It wasn’t known if he had an attorney.

Police say they were called to a grocery store at around 12:30 p.m. Saturday for an assault call. Authorities say 37-year-old Willie Ray Dixon of Myrtle Beach had been stabbed in the back.

Dixon died at a hospital later Saturday.

Hudson was arrested that day on unrelated charges, but murder and weapons possession were added after Dixon’s death.
