LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have released an autopsy report on a man who deputies say was stabbed to death [auth] by a professional mixed martial artist during a suspected home invasion.
The report released by the Office of the Medical Examiner on Thursday says 25-year-old Sal Garces was suffered four stab wounds to the chest, which injured his heart and left lung.
A toxicology report also says Garces had a blood alcohol level of 0.13.
Deputies say Torrez fatally stabbed Garces after he and two others forced their way into Torrez’s mobile home.
Torrez has not been charged, nor has he been formally cleared of any crime.
Four people face charges in connection with the case.
After the stabbing, Torrez’s attorney says he moved from the area for his family’s safety.
