At 8:15 a.m. today, Secundino Martinez, twenty, will make his first Boulder County appearance in relation to a stabbing at a Longmont house party early Sunday morning. And while he was initially busted on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder, that's now doubled, sadly enough.

Understandably, the page of his beloved sister, Daniella, is infinitely more somber. Underneath a profile photo of them together....
...are messages of deep sorrow, including this one: "Jerrad Wallace, we love you so much and always will! You are now with me and everyone always. Rest peacefully."
What are the circumstances that led to Jerrad's death? Commander Jeff Satur, spokesman for the Longmont Police Department, fills us in.
"About 2:07 in the morning on Sunday, officers and fire department personnel were dispatched to 712 Francis Street on a report of a stabbing," Satur says.
A look at the crime scene, from 9News coverage.
"When they got there," he goes on, "they found three people stabbed. One of them" -- a nineteen year old who hasn't been named at this writing -- "was deceased and the other two were in bad condition. They were transported to Longmont United Hospital, where one of the individuals went into surgery immediately. The other one had to go to surgery, and then he had to go back a second time."
The latter person, age seventeen, "is doing better right now," Satur notes. However, he reveals that the other hospitalized person -- Wallace -- was placed in a medically induced coma. And he never regained consciousness.
