Arraignment for man accused of killing roommate

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A National City man accused of stabbing his sex offender roommate to death is scheduled to be arraigned at the South Bay Courthouse Tuesday.

Joel Gutierrez, 28, is charged with murder in the death of 53-year-old Enrique Atilano, who was convicted of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14.

A passerby found a wounded Atilano on his door step in the 300 block of Norton Avenue around 1 a.m. May 15, according to National City police. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Atilano and Gutierrez shared a unit in a four-unit apartment complex, police said. Gutierrez was arrested the next day. The motive for the slaying was unclear.
