Anthony man stabbed to death, roommate held
Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department
An Anthony, NM, man was stabbed to death early Sunday, and sheriff’s deputies have arrested the alleged killer.
Marcos Tucker, 30, was stabbed with a knife just after midnight Sunday in the 2000 block of Acosta in Anthony. Tucker was rushed to an El Paso hospital, where he died.
Doña Ana County Sheriff’s investigators have charged Manuel “Manny” Ortega, 29, with murder and tampering with evidence. They said the stabbing was believed to be family related. The two men were roommates. It was unclear late Sunday what, if any, other relationship there was between Tucker and Ortega.
This is the first homicide of 2012 in Doña Ana County.
