SANTA ANA, Calif. – Six defendants were charged today with the stabbing murder of a man in a San Juan Capistrano park. Ashkan Dezhangfard, 21, Brion Cairo Hyde, 22, and Anjelica Marie Shibata, 28, of San Juan Capistrano, Siavash Hosseinaliarhani, 18, and Ryan Timothy Huebner, 20, of Laguna Niguel, and Myles Emmanuel Jones, 22, Laguna Hills, are each charged with one felony count of special circumstances murder by lying in wait. The defendants each face a minimum sentence of life in state prison without the possibility of parole. The defendants' court dates are to be determined.

Prior to July 2016, Shibata and Hyde were in a romantic relationship and living together in San Juan Capistrano. At the time of the crime, Shibata was engaged in a romantic relationship with 38-year-old Alvaro Rios.

In the early morning hours of July 12, 2016, Shibata is accused of asking Rios to meet her in an abandoned area near a bike path in San Juan Capristano. The defendants are accused of waiting for the victim to arrive. Rios was stabbed numerous times and died at the scene. Each of the defendants are accused of fleeing the scene.

The next day, a jogger discovered the victim's body and contacted the Orange County Sheriff's Department, who investigated this case.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Scott Simmons of the Homicide Unit is prosecuting this case.
