Second murder charge filed for man accused of fatal stabbing

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A second murder charge was filed Wednesday against a man accused of stabbing two men outside a Grantville restaurant where a birthday party was taking place.

Jim Duc Nguyen -- who's being held without bail -- faces 107 years to life in prison if convicted of two murder counts and knife allegations in the deaths Christopher Manzon and Ador Laus.

Nguyen, 24, pleaded not guilty to the charges and had his preliminary hearing set for Aug. 13.

Deputy District Attorney Chris Moon said a group of people were outside the Friars Road restaurant about 12:25 a.m. June 2 where some were drinking alcohol.

The restaurant manager asked a partygoer, Laus, to ask the group to come back in, and Nguyen took offense, according to Moon, who alleged that an argument ensued and Nguyen fatally stabbed Manzon.

Laus chased Nguyen and caught him. During that fight, Laus also was stabbed, and died a week later.
