A 35-year-old ex-convict accused of a double stabbing in Anaheim was charged Tuesday with two counts of attempted murder.
Flavio Hernandez Marquez of Anaheim also faces sentencing enhancement allegations for attempted premeditated murder and inflicting great bodily injury.
Marquez was accused of stabbing a 32-year-old man in the 1100 block of West Ball Road, and two minutes later a 30-year-old woman in the 1200 block of South Walnut Street about 8 p.m. Thursday, according to Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt.
The victims were in critical condition when they were taken to an area hospital, Wyatt said.
The stabbings were narcotics related, Wyatt said.
Marquez was charged with attempted murder in July 2003, but those charges were dropped when he pleaded guilty a year later to assault with a firearm. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Marquez pleaded guilty May 7, 2015 to carrying a dirk or dagger, according to court records. He was sentenced to two years in prison.
