Santa Clara County Superior Court has delayed the trial of a Gilroy man accused of stabbing a man to death in March 2008 and assaulting another man.
Osiris Quintero Muñoz, 28, will be tried for murder and assault with a deadly weapon on April 5, following the March 16, 2008, death of Juan Cabrera and stabbing of Adan Carbrera. The trial initially was supposed to start Monday.
Gilroy police arrested Muñoz the evening of March 25, 2008, on the 800 block of El Cerrito Way for violating the conditions of his probation. The arrest resulted from a tip that led undercover GPD officers to the home of his employer in unincorporated Morgan Hill.
Muñoz allegedly told police that security guards ejected him and a friend from Rio Nilo, 7474 Monterey St., because his friend was fighting with two fatal victims, Juan DeDios Arvizu Cabrera, 26, of Castroville – who eventually died outside the bar from multiple stab wounds – and Adan Arvizu Cabrera, 23, of Salinas, who suffered non-life threatening knife wounds, police said.
Muñoz was found guilty of an unrelated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, in September 2006.
