SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A 23-year-old San Jose man has been arrested on murder charges in connection with a weekend stabbing that left one man dead and another severely injured, authorities announced Friday.
San Jose police said Miguel Angel Gomez-Vasquez and Liliana Frausto, both 23, were in custody on charges related to the Sunday night stabbing that claimed the life of Frank Ibarra and sent another unidentified man to the hospital with a stab wound.
Gomez-Vasquez was being held on murder charges while Frausto has been charged as on accessory after the fact.
Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of N. Capitol Ave. at 7:55 p.m. Sunday after receiving calls reporting an altercation and stabbing.
