Authorities Friday publicly identified a Navy man who was fatally stabbed this week during a fight at his East County home.
Anderson Lopes, 24, was mortally wounded about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday during an altercation that also injured his wife in an unincorporated area just north of Interstate 8 and south of Lake Jennings, according to sheriff’s officials. Medics took Lopes to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Lt. Rich Williams said.
Reports from the scene indicated that the woman was injured while trying break up a fight between her husband and a second man in their condominium in the 13800 block of Pinkard Way. The couple’s child was in the home at the time but was not harmed.
