Authorities on Thursday publicly recognized a 58-year-old man who was fatally stabbed at his North Park residence over Fourth of July weekend.
Patrol officers responding to a reported assault simply earlier than midnight Sunday discovered John Baquera affected by stab wounds to his chest at an condominium within the 3800 block of Alabama Avenue, in line with police. Baquera died on the scene, San Diego police Lt. Steve Shebloski stated.
The suspected assailant, Jonathan Robert Camp, 39, was gone when police arrived. He returned residence about 4 a.m. Monday, and was arrested on suspicion of homicide.
In the meantime, Camp pleaded not responsible to homicide Thursday, plus an allegation that he used a knife within the killing. He faces as much as 26 years to life in state jail if convicted. He stays in custody with out bail.
Precisely what led to the deadly assault remained unclear, although Shebloski stated there apparently had “been an ongoing dispute in regard to the dwelling scenario between the suspect and the sufferer.”
Camp lived within the condominium along with his father and Baquera, in line with police.
