Different Stabbing Cases in San Diego

Argument Turns into Violent Stabbing

Stabbings are something quite scary and ultimately life threatening. Nothing good can come from a stabbing incident.

There was an argument that broke out and turned violent quickly in the Ocean Beach area. During the argument, four people were stabbed.

According to the reports, the stabbing took place at Brighton and Bacon and happened just after midnight. There was also a trail of blood on the sidewalk.

According to the San Diego Police two women and a man got into an argument of some sorts with two men who were walking towards them. The officers also said that someone had taken a knife out and stabbed two of the men and both of the women.

Police said that they think that the man that was walking with the two women is the one who used the knife in self defense.

One of the victims had to be rushed to the hospital, once there he had to go into surgery. Police say that two of the victims were under the influence and weren’t able to provide any information about the stabbing suspect.

Luckily, the injuries the victims are suffering from were non-life threatening. At this time, there has been no arrests made.


Woman Jailed for Stabbing Her Wife to Death

In another type of stabbing case, is more of a domestic dispute type. Which are sadly more common that what you think.

According to the reports, a San Diego woman was accused of stabbing her wife to deah inside of their San Carlos apartment. She tried to escape her capture for almost twenty days. On Friday, she was sentence to twenty years to life in prison. The court officials confirmed that Tiffany Nowden’s prison bound faith was decided just one day before her forty-first birthday. Nowden was also ordered to pay restitution.

Tiffany Nowden pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the deadly stabbing of wife, Russina Vale who was thirty-eight years old.

On June 5, 2014 Russina Vale’s body was found, completely naked and was inside of an apartment at the Vila De Flores complex. The complex is located in the 7700 block of Mission Gorge Road.


Stabbing Victim Woman’s Body Found

According to the San Diego Police Department investigators, Russina’s body was found in her bed. Russina suffered from two stab wounds. The wounds were to her stomach and to her upper right arm as well as her chest. The chest wound proved to be what ultimately ended her life.

After the police found Russina’s body, her wife couldn’t be found anywhere. Since she was missing she was instantly a murder suspect in the homicide of her wife.

Tiffany was on the run for almost twenty days. Tiffany hid from the police who only wanted to question her about her wife’s murder. Her not wanting to  be captured seemingly proved her guilty.

Luckily the U.S. Marshals officials tracked down Tiffany Nowden in late June 2014. She was caught in home on Market Street in San Diego. She was later arrested and then booked into the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility. She has since been in their custody.

At the time of the murder, the police interrogated the neighbors, searching for clues. The neighbors said that the couple lived in the apartment complex together. However, they had recently been fighting and recently broke up. According to the neighbors, when they were happier, the women could often be seen walking their dogs together.

According to the searching, the Prosecutors confirmed that the couple had gotten into a heated argument at Nowden’s place of employment. Nowden worked at the Barona Casino. This happened just shortly before Vale’s stabbing.

According tot he prosecutor’s finding, Vale had sent emails to her family and friends telling them that her relationship with her wife was over. She was planning to seek a divorce from her.


At the pre-trial fro Nowden which was in October 2014, her aunt, Zanetta Moloi from San Bernardino testified that she was asked to pick up Nowden in San Diego, this was after Vale’s murder. She claimed that Nowden had to be picked up because she was in trouble.

Her aunt, Moloi also said that Nowden appeared very stressed when she had picked her up in San Diego. Moloi also said that her niece was in a hurry to call an attorney, however she had decided to not meet the attorney. Nowden of course cleaned herself up at her aunt’s house and then quickly left. She didn’t even say where she was going. Moloi also said that she didn’t know what had happened to her niece’s wife until several days after she had seen Nowden.

Nowden’s aunt wasn’t the only family member to appear in court to testify, two of her sisters also spoke in court. The court also heard from one of Vale’s loved ones.


Man Gets Involved in Stabbing by Being A Good Samaritan

A man tries to be a good guy and ends up in a stabbing incident. According to the San Diego police, a man was trying to do a good deed and intervene in a dispute between a man and a woman and was sadly stabbed over the weekend.

According to the stabbing victim, he saw a male suspect harassing a woman in the parking lot of a local 7-Eleven at the University Avenue and Texas Street. Which is probably a pretty busy street.

According to the reports, when the stabbing victim tried to separate the fighting couple, the suspect then pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim on time in the chest. Talk about hardcore, just for a little argument.

Of course the victim was immediately taken to a local hospital by a family member.  According to the victim, the suspect was last seen riding north on a BMX bicycle. Must be a real tough guy. There was no available description of the woman.

The police are going to continue to investigate this stabbing case. Hopefully they find the suspect soon.

Police Investigate Phoenix Stabbings

Phoenix Stabbings

Phoenix has been overran by shootings and stabbings lately. Police have definitely stayed pretty busy. According to details recently released, there was a murder in north Phoenix. The body was found by a person passing by.

The police report shows that on June 3rd a person passing by saw a man who was unresponsive. This was in a parking lot near Pinnacle Peak and Cave Creek roads.  Can’t imagine how scary that would have been for the person just innocently passing by.

The victim was later identified as, Evin Ibrahim Paulos. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident. According to the police, Paulos had around 30 stab wounds. Talk about a horrible ending to his life.

The police has been able to identify a suspect in this case, however they are not releasing his name due to investigative purposes.

Investigating Stabbings

The Phoenix Police investigated the scene. Their report says that the suspect and the victim knew each other since the suspect moved to Arizona. Apparently he was a part of a drug and gang culture. He came to Arizona to try to get away from it. The suspect was described as “inappropriate and aggressive”.

Local witnesses say that the victim and suspect had had their differences before and had “sought to fight it out”.  Apparently on June 2nd, the two did actually fight. They fought by the lights from the headlights. The suspect even had the fight recorded on video. After the fight, the victim had went home and told his family that they had worked things out and were still friends.

Police found out that the next day the suspect went over to Paulos’ home in the morning. Paulos was going to take a trip with the suspect. That was the last time that Paulos was seen alive.

A family member contacted the suspect, he told them that the Paulos had jumped out of the vehicle, just down the street from his home and he kept driving. Crazy story, why would Paulos jump out of a vehicle if the two were on good terms?

The suspect is being hunted by the fugitive task force. He or she has already been charged with second degree murder.

Fatal Stabbing Kills a Woman

Sadly, domestic violence can lead to death. When things get bad enough for the cops to be called, it’s probably time to go your separate ways for the health of all of those involved. Sometimes, on very rare occasion, the victim in a domestic dispute gets away from their vindictive life and has a great new start, however that wasn’t the case when a woman was fatally stabbed.

In south Phoenix a woman sadly got stabbed during a domestic dispute. Police said that they responded to a report of a family fight around eleven o’clock in the morning. The home was located near 43rd Avenue and Baseline Road.

Police Identified Stabbing Victim

The police were able to find and identify a sixty year old woman named Mercy Gomez. Gomez was stabbed and later died at a nearby hospital.

Olanzo Gomez is forty-two years old and is accused of stabbing his mother to death. How tragic is it that a son stabbed the woman who gave him life?

Olanzo was detained and will face one count of first degree murder, as well as three counts of aggravated assault.

Severe Stabbing in Phoenix

Police Arrest Man Involved in Phoenix Stabbing

Phoenix police arrested the husband of a woman who was found stabbed to death in her west Phoenix home and were preparing to submit murder charges against the man, Phoenix police said late Monday morning.

Police said Jaime Silerio-Orozco, 45, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder in death of 42-year-old Maria Del Refugio Soto.

Police said Silerio-Orozco initially told officers that he had seen someone running from his house near 75th Avenue and Crittenden Lane, but he later admitted to investigators that he had stabbed Soto, said Sgt. Vince Lewis, a Phoenix police spokesman.

Police were originally called to the home about 9:30 p.m. Sunday where they found Soto dead, Lewis said.

Neighbors said the woman’s husband and son were home at the time of the stabbing; a daughter moved out several weeks ago.

“If it’s what I think it is — and I hope it’s not what I think it is — then this is very sad news,” said neighbor Yvonne Diaz, 46.

Diaz said that the family is “very sweet” and the woman is going to be missed, adding that, “she was very generous to everyone in the neighborhood.”

Bus Stabbing in Phoenix

Phoenix police identified the suspect Sunday in a weekend stabbing at a bus stop that left the victim in critical condition.

The suspect, Louis York, 41, walked up to officers Saturday morning as they were setting up a perimeter in the area of 37th Avenue and Medlock.

Police said York made some comments that led them to believe he was the suspect, said Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson.

York was taken into custody without incident.

Thompson said the stabbing occurred shortly after 8:30 a.m. at the northbound bus stop north of Camelback Road on 35th Avenue.

Witnesses said York stabbed 30-year-old Matthew Jones for no known reason.

Jones was rushed to the hospital with a stab wound to the abdomen. He is not expected to survive, a court document stated.

Suspect Flees the Scene

The suspect fled the scene, but later approached officers.

There is no known motive other than the suspect indicated he may have mental problems, Thompson said.

Investigators from the Violent Crimes Bureau processed the scene and interviewed the witnesses and suspect.

York told officers he was recently released from a mental health hospital and, prior to his release, informed staff that he would kill someone once he was freed, according to court paperwork.

The suspect told detectives he obtained the knife that morning from a friend’s house and kept it in his waistband for protection because people were following him.

York got on a bus at 15th Avenue and Camelback Road and saw the victim, whom he believed he had seen at a drug house two days before, the court document stated.

Stabbing Suspect

York and Jones got off the bus at 35th Avenue and Camelback Road and waited at the bus stop for a northbound bus.

While waiting, York said the victim looked at him and started to manipulate his waist while two other people appeared suspicious, police said.

York said he removed the knife from his waistband and stabbed the victim once, the court document said. York said the knife got stuck and he cut his hand on the blade.

According to court paperwork, York said he had been smoking and injecting crystal methamphetamine recently and was not taking his medication for paranoia.

Suspect in Phoenix Stabbing

Phoenix police have one suspect in custody and are looking for another after a fatal stabbing near Seventh Avenue and Camelback Road early Monday morning.

Von Richard Mraz, 55, was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on one count of second-degree murder.

According to the police report, Mraz was sleeping near a building when a 25- to 35-year-old man tried to steal some of his personal property. Mraz told police that he was awakened by the victim going through his pockets and removing a sheathed knife from his pants belt. He said the man fled but left his cellphone at the scene and later returned.

Stabbing Victim

Mraz alerted others sleeping in the area and a fellow transient confronted the man, according to police. The three men ended up in a fight and the alleged robber was stabbed several times.

The injured man was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police searched the area and took Mraz into custody.

They are still looking for a suspect described as a white male, 60 to 65 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with long blond hair. He is known to frequent some of the businesses in the area.

The business parking lots in the area were closed off for the investigation.

Recent Murder Crimes

Murder of a 14 Year Old Girl Being Investigated


When a child is taken or runs away from home, you can’t help but imagine the worse. For one set of parents, they might be closer to having some answers about what happened to their little girl. Even if they are horribly sad, answers.

Police are investigating the murder of a fourteen year old girl. They think that maybe the case might be linked to a case where a twelve year old girl might have ran away from home.

On Wednesday morning, the San Diego Police Lt. Mike Hastings, stated that the body of a Anna Hernandez was found in a canyon, just off the 2900 block of Market Street on November 18th. Even though they found her on the 18th, they weren’t able to positively identify the girl until November 23rd.

According to the report, the young girl’s body was badly decomposed. The San Diego Medical Examiner’s autopsy proved that she sadly suffered from at least one gunshot wound to her upper body. Who in the world would want to shoot a fourteen  year old little girl?!

Lt. Hasting’s Statement About the Murder:

Regarding Anna’s homicide, the investigation continues including the processing of many items of evidence. The homicide team has served search warrants and conducted many interviews in the last seven days.


Nelly Espinoza who was twelve years old, was a friend of Hernandez. She lives in an apartment complex close to where Hernandez’s body was found. Nelly was last seen on November 13th. According to the police, the young girl isn’t considered a missing person, but a juvenile runaway.

The San Diego police recieved information that Nelly was with a family member in Northern Mexico She reportedly talked to her family, who live in San Diego, by phone. She told them that if they tried to look for her, then she would go deeper into Mexico.

Lt. Hastings said that Nelly could be with the sixteen year old runaway Janeth Mendoza. Janeth was last seen in October of this year. Both Tijuana and the San Diego police have put out missing persons fliers and are doing what they can to get to the bottom of this.

Lt. Hastings did not confirm if the investigating officers think that there is a link between Hernandez’s murder and Nelly Espinoza.

Hernandez recently transferred to the San Diego High School from High Tech High. Police have not released a possible motive in her killing. There has also been no arrests at this time.  The police are actually keeping quite about the possible suspects as well. Them being minors, I’m sure this case will be hard to handle publicity wise. I’m sure they’ll keep the public and the families updated as new information come in.

Phoenix Manslaughter Lawyer

At the Phoenix based Offices of Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC, we have defended many clients charged with a violent crime, including murder charges and other high-level violent crimes. We can provide the strong defense you need if you have been charged with voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.

If you discovered your spouse in bed with a lover and as a result killed your spouse in a sudden rage, you may have been charged with first-degree murder. However, you may only be guilty of voluntary manslaughter, an offense that carries a maximum prison sentence of 11 years, as opposed to a life sentence.

Manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. The term malice is used in a highly technical sense and does not simply imply a feeling of anger.


Types of Manslaughter Defenses

If you have been charged with murder and the evidence is stacked against you to show that you did unlawfully kill another person, seeking a conviction to the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter may make a significant difference in your case.

To effectively raise such a defense, you must be able to establish that you were provoked, that a reasonable person in such a situation might be similarly provoked to kill, and that you did not have sufficient time to cool off and further contemplate your actions. If retained as your counsel, we will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case to determine which defense strategy gives you the best opportunity to protect your freedom.


Types of Manslaughter Cases in Phoenix

In the state of Arizona, you may be charged with involuntary manslaughter under two separate circumstances:

  • If you committed a crime (other than a felony) and unintentionally caused the

death of another person.

  • If you were engaged in a lawful act that might cause death and acted without

“due caution and circumspection.”


Manslaughter Conviction and Sentencing

A conviction for involuntary manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of four years imprisonment. If you caused the unintentional death of another person and you were not committing a crime, it is not sufficient for the prosecution to allege that you made a mistake. The phrase “without due cause and circumspection” implies something more than a simple mistake. Our Phoenix Attorneys can raise a number of issues and defenses on your behalf to raise the strong defense you need. A plea to a lesser offense or a plea that allows you to avoid a criminal conviction may be possible depending on the facts of your case. If you choose to fight your charges at trial, we have the skilled trial lawyers to aggressively defend your rights in the courtroom.

Woman Stabbed by Son in North Phoenix

28 Year Old Stabs Mother In Vehicle After Argument


A lot of crime now days often is a result from a family dispute. On Sunday a woman was left in critical condition after her son had stabbed her in North Phoenix.




A stabbing is when something sharp penetrates the skin or an object at close range. Stab connotes purposeful action, by an assassin or murder. Of course it is always possible to accidentally stab yourself or another person. Stabbing is a bit different than slashing or cutting. When slashing or cutting, the motion of the object used to do that stabbing usually moves more perpendicular and directly into the victim’s body, rather than across the victim.


A lot of stabbings that take place now days are among gangs and in prisons. Why? Because the knives are easy to make or get and are cheap. Plus they’re pretty effective for whatever you’re intending to do with one.


28 Year Old Son Stabs Mother


According to the Phoenix Police, a woman and her twenty-eight year old son had gotten into an argument in a vehicle which happened near 51st Avenue and Cactus Road. The stabbing happened pretty late on Sunday, around ten, thirty at night.


During the family feud or argument, the suspect then began to stab his mother. The mother then fell out of the vehicle. There were witnesses nearby and saw the woman in need of help. They rushed to the woman’s aid and also tried to stop the suspect, according to the local police. One of the witnesses got pretty brave and rushed to retrieve a gun from his own home and tried to get the suspect to stop. The witness even shot the suspect after he gave the suspect several warning commands.


The suspect died from his injuries. The woman was transported to the local hospital in critical condition.


How Stabbing Works

The human skin has a somewhat elastic property as a self-defense; when the human body is stabbed by a thin object such as a kitchen knife, the skin often closes tightly around the object and closes again if the object is removed, which can trap some blood within the body. It has thus been speculated that the fuller, an elongated concave depression in a metal blade, functions to let blood out of the body in order to cause more damage. This misconception has led to fullers becoming widely known as “blood grooves”. The fuller is actually a structural reinforcement of the blade similar in design to a metal I-beam used in construction. However, internal bleeding is just as dangerous as external bleeding; if enough blood vessels are severed to cause serious injury, the skin’s elasticity will do nothing to prevent blood from exiting the circulatory system and accumulating uselessly in other parts of the body.

Death from stabbing is caused by shock, severe blood loss, infection, or loss of function of an essential organ such as the heart or lungs.


If the suspect would have lived, there would have been a hearing and sentencing. Criminal Law is designed to give consequences to those who do not abide by the law. Every crime is made up of criminal elements. Most punishments for these crimes would include incarcerated in prison or jail. Could be sentenced to solitary. Of course the length of the crime varies on several things like severity of the crime or if this is a first offence. Some lighter sentencing would include house arrest, as well as parole or a probation regimen. There could also be fines, for seizing money or property of the suspect.


Objectives Of Criminal Law


There are mainly five objective associated with the enforcement of criminal law which are:


Retribution: where criminals should “suffer” in a certain way.  this is usually a common goal to the judge and jury. The terms “balance the scales” comes up a lot with this one. People can submit to the law to receive the right not to be murdered. The ones who “contravene” these laws then give up the rights which was granted to them by the law. Meaning that, the suspect can then be also executed.


Deterrence: When used as Individual deterrence, it’s aimed towards a specific suspect. The main purpose is to “impose a sufficient penalty to discourage the offender” from any more criminal behavior. General Deterrence is when the focus is at society as a whole. They then impose a penalty to those who commit certain offences. Other individuals re hoped not to make the same offenses.


Incapacitatation: Is made so that the criminals are kept away from society. So that the public can be safe from the suspect’s behavior. this is usually done in prison sentences today. The death penalty, and banishment have also served as an incapacitation as well.


Rehabilitation: This one is pretty common. Even if you’re not a criminal, you can still deal with rehabilitation. It’s a daily struggle fro some people. Rehabilitation aims at trying to transform the offender into a better person or a valuable member of the society. The primary goal of Rehabilitation is so that the suspect won’t commit the same crime and realize what they done was wrong.


Restoration: Is focused on the victim, but also a punishment to the offender. The goal here is to repair things. This could mean many things. If someone stole money, this is when they have to pay that money back.


So, hopefully you won’t have to deal with any of these stages of criminal law. It’s sad that a son could kill his own mother, over an argument. Nothing is that important in life that you should just take another’s life with no known reason. Hopefully the injured woman will make it through her injuries. It’s sad that she lost a son as well as he own sturggle.

DNA Evidence Helps Put to Rest a 20 Year Old Murder Case

DNA Final Factor in 20 Year Old Multiple Murder Cases


Technology and Science is ever changing. It’s so amazing and a thing of awe what science can do today. Thanks to DNA evidence an arrest has been made against a man who is involved for the killings of two young women twenty years ago. The two women who vanished, ten months apart on bike rides. They were riding near Phoenix’s Canal System.


Police were able to arrest forty-two year old, Bryan Patrick Miller on late Tuesday. They got him for the stabbing deaths of two girls, twenty-two year old Angela Brosso and seventeen year old Melanie Bernas.


According to the report, Angela was killed in November of 1992. Melanie was killed almost a year later in September 1993. Both of the young women had disappeared while biking near the Arizona Canal. Angela’s body was found decapitated, near an apartment complex. Melanie’s body was found 1.5 miles away just floating in the water.


Police Use DNA Evidence to Solve 20 Year Old Case


Police said that they were able to use forensic evidence connecting the killings within years. However, the investigators weren’t able to identify a suspect back then. Luckily, some DNA evidence was recently collected by some undercover officers and were able to link Miller to the killings.


Sgt. Trent Crump’s Statement:

Within literally hours we had a hit from those two murders, scientifically linking him by DNA, linking him to those two murders over 20 years ago.



Officers were able to search Miller’s rental home overnight. They expected to be continuing the search for several days due to the home being full of unspecified material. It’s unclear of what though.


Miller was being held without bond for: two counts of first degree murder and kidnapping as well as one count of sexual assault. Miller did not have a lawyer when he appeared in court on Wednesday. However, during the police interview, he denied having any involvement in the killings.


Police Statement in Court Document:

The defendant could not explain how the DNA profile obtained from the defendant was a match to the DNA profiles obtained from the victims.


Even though Miller denied any involvement, he did admit to living in the area of the killings at the time. He even admitted to also riding his bike on the bike paths.


Police have stated in the past that these killings were like the killer specialized in military training and he also collected trophies from the victims. Either bike from the killings were never found. However during the search, police did find a bike in Miller’s shed. It’s unclear if it’s one of the victims bikes though.
