A 49-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing
in San Bernardino, following a fight with another man over a woman.
The incident occurred early the morning of Friday, Oct. 3. San Bernardino
police said they were summoned to an address in the 700 block of East
Orange Show Road around 7:30 a.m. There, they found a 34-year-old man
who had apparently been stabbed multiple times in the torso. The man was
taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he later died as
a result of his injuries. The suspect was arrested at the scene. Police
have said both men lived at the same address and that the altercation
started over a woman, but have not released further details.
It should go without saying that if the 49-year-old man is charged, the
accusations against him will be quite serious. He may be charged with
murder or with
manslaughter. Those are two different crimes, and the appropriate charge depends on
the circumstances of the situation.
Without a doubt, the accused man is feeling remorseful, ashamed and very
scared. He is going to need a vigorous ally to make sure that his rights
are respected as the criminal justice system proceeds along.
