One man is dead and another is in custody following a stabbing outside of a residence in Erath County Sunday night.
The 42-year-old victim, Eleno Lopez Trejo, was stabbed repeatedly in the upper body, Lt. Ben Moore with the Erath County Sheriff’s Office said.
“He was transported by ambulance to Texas Health Stephenville where he was pronounced dead,” Moore said.
Juan Jose Voillejo Nunez, 22, has been charged with the murder and is being held at the Erath County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
The victim and suspect both worked at local dairies.
Sheriff Matt Coates said when deputies arrived at the scene Sunday a witness stepped forward to say the suspect had fled in a blue Ford Expedition.
“The deputies located (Nunez) about a mile down the road and took him into custody,” Coates said.
Nunez was with a second man who was not arrested.
The altercation reportedly took place in a driveway and started with a dispute over a woman.
The victim was reportedly married and had four young children.
