Two accused killers are scheduled for a court hearing Wednesday after being arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the fatal stabbing of a man during an argument over a parking space in Monterey Park.
The victim was involved in an argument with two men that eventually erupted into a fight during which the victim was stabbed several times, the Sheriff’s Information Bureau reported.
The stabbing occurred about 12:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of College View Drive, where Monterey Park police officers dispatched to the location found the victim suffering from several stab wounds to his upper body.

Paramedics rushed him to an area hospital, where he later died from his wounds.
The victim, whose name has not been released pending family notifications, was in his 20s, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.
The suspects were identified as 55-year-old Victor Garcia and 57-year- old Moises Garcia, Lt. Rodney Moore of the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau told The Tribune.
It’s unclear if the suspects are related.
They are each being held in lieu of $2 million bail and are due in court in Alhambra on Wednesday, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
According to Moore, the men and the victim argued over a parking space, but other circumstances may have been involved.
“There might be other mitigating factors,” Moore told The Tribune.
