Posted by Fay Arfa | May 27, 2016 | 0 Comments

A 36-year-old man pleaded not guilty today to stabbing his father during an argument in their Azusa home, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Marlon Enrique Juares (dob 7/16/79) has been charged with two felony counts in case KA112646: attempted murder and making criminal threats.

The felony complaint includes a special allegation that the defendant personally used a deadly and dangerous weapon, a knife, during the commission of the crime. Additionally, the charging document alleges that Juares inflicted great bodily injury on the victim.

Prosecutors said on May 24 Juares and his father reportedly got into an argument in their home.

The confrontation escalated and the defendant allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed his father in the head, prosecutors added.

A family member was able to successfully intervene and stop the assault, prosecutors said.

Juares is scheduled to return to court on June 15 for a hearing in Department 4 at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, West Covina Branch.

If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of life in state prison.

The case is being investigated by the Azusa Police Department.
