Fourteen years after being charged with murder, a man accused of stabbing another man to death on an Oklahoma City street sat behind bars Wednesday.
Jesus Truillo, 41, was charged in 2000 in connection with the stabbing death of Jose Galvin, 25.
On Feb. 25, 2000, Oklahoma City police responded to a call of a stabbing and found Galvin lying partially in the street with several stab wounds. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died.
In the days after Galvin’s death, witnesses told police Truillo had argued with Galvin in the street outside 1228 SW 26 and stabbed him with a fixed-blade knife, according to court documents.
Truillo fled the scene and Oklahoma City police weren’t able to locate Truillo because he had given a false Social Security number and immigration card to an employer and a landlord, according to court documents.
On April 21, he was arrested by Dallas police and was brought back to Oklahoma City by Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputies March 28.
He was booked into Oklahoma County jail and is being held without bail.
