A Middle River man fatally stabbed a man after he had been told his wife and the victim were having an affair, charging documents allege.
Carlos Alexander Chavez-Alvarez, 37, is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center on a charge of first-degree murder, online court records said.
Denys Javie Hernandez-Martinez, 32, was found suffering from stab wounds in a parking lot in Rosedale’s Fontana Village neighborhood early on Dec. 19. He was taken to nearby Franklin Square Medical Center, where he died, police said.
Police said in charging documents that Chavez-Alvarez used a “large” kitchen knife to cut and stab the victim before fleeing the scene.
A witness said Chavez-Alvarez had been told that his wife and Hernandez-Martinez were having an affair, according to charging documents.
Court documents said police were able to identify Chavez-Alvarez as the alleged killer because of witnesses and detectives found his cell several feet from where the victim was found. Chavez-Alvarez confessed to detectives after being arrested, police said.
