LITTLE ROCK, AR – Police released the identities of two men stabbed to death in a trailer on Stanton Road Sunday night.
The victims are 25-year-old Luis Martinez and 41-year-old Esteban Mendez-Martinez (no relation). Little Rock police say 51-year-old Froilan Reyes is wanted on two counts of first degree murder and one count of aggravated assault in connection to the deaths.
In the police report, Martinez’ girlfriend says the three men were together drinking in his home at 8118 Stanton Road. At some point, “Lito” (Reyes) disrespected Martinez and Martinez asked him to leave.
The girlfriend tells police that “Lito” came back with a butcher knife and stabbed Martinez in the chest and then stabbed Mendez-Martinez several times in the chest. The girlfriend fled and called police.
