SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Northern California say six members of a San Jose family have been charged in the fatal stabbing of a bar security guard over a confiscated identification card.
Santa Clara County prosecutors said Friday that two brothers, a sister, and three cousins have each been charged with murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon in the February 2017 killing of 35-year-old Frank Navarro.
Prosecutors say Navarro was the head of security at the Tres Gringos bar in San Jose when he was stabbed after intervening in a confrontation between the group and a bouncer who had confiscated an ID card from one of them.
If convicted, Joseph Esquivel, Percella Esquivel, Santos Trevino, Robert Ruiz and Andrew Cervantes face life in prison.
