UPDATE: Two men killed in stabbing during party at San Diego home identified

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A man accused of stabbing three people, two of whom died, in the Jamacha/Lomita area of San Diego pleaded not guilty Wednesday to murder and assault charges.

Michael Major, 38, is accused in the Sunday morning stabbing deaths of two men, which police said occurred at a home in the 800 block of Carlsbad Street. A woman was also stabbed, but was hospitalized with non-life- threatening injuries.

Police were called at about 2:40 a.m. and according to San Diego police Lt. Adam Sharki, investigators found that during a “gathering” at the home, a fight broke out and Major allegedly stabbed the victims.

Few new details were disclosed during Major’s arraignment Wednesday afternoon on charges of murder and assault with a deadly weapon, but Deputy District Attorney Kristie Nikoletich said all the parties were known to one another.

Major remains in custody without bail.
