A Pico Rivera man was charged Friday with murder for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend during a fight last month in the Whittier area.
George Luis Delgado, 53, is set to be arraigned Oct. 27 in connection with the Sept. 26 stabbing death of Tyrone Duran, 42.
According to the criminal complaint, Delgado has prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance in 2006, petty theft with priors in 2009 and possession for sale of a controlled substance in 2014.
Prosecutors allege that Delgado went to his ex-girlfriend’s home and confronted the woman and her new boyfriend, who left but later returned and got into a fight with the defendant that culminated with the stabbing.
Duran was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Delgado was arrested Wednesday by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and held on $1 million bail.
