Teen arrested in fatal Albuquerque stabbing

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Another teen murder suspect is behind bars after confessing to stabbing a man in the neck and stomach this weekend. According to a criminal complaint, police were called to the Portales apartments in southeast Albuquerque early Saturday morning because a maintenance man said he found a body inside one of the units.

When police arrived they found blood everywhere and 54-year-old Anthony Marquez face down in a back bedroom. Police say Marquez offered 19-year-old Jesse Fierro, his girlfriend and 2-year-old daughter a place to stay.

Fierro told police he stabbed Marquez in his apartment after he allegedly touched the woman’s arm and made her feel uncomfortable.

He’s charged with an open count of murder and other charges.
