Second victim in multiple Denver stabbings dies

A second victim in a southeast Denver stabbing has died, and a suspect in the case is being held for investigation of first-degree murder.

The incident happened on the morning of Dec. 7 in the 10100 block of East Harvard Avenue, according to police. One victim, 20-year-old Taylor Trevino, died at the scene. The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner will release the identity of the second victim, who was taken to a hospital in critical condition and has since died.

Officers responded to the area on a report of a “domestic disturbance,” police said on Twitter.

The same day as the double stabbing, police responded to an assault a few blocks away at 2500 South Dayton Way where a man was taken into custody and investigators worked to “determine a possible connection between the detained male and the homicide/stabbing,” police said on Twitter at the time.

Matthew Omara, 37, is being held on investigation of first-degree murder, according to the Denver Police Department.
