BOSTON (AP) - A 20-year-old Revere man was ordered held without bail in connection with the stabbing death last week of a 50-year-old East Boston man.
Christian Santa was arraigned on a murder charge Monday in connection with the death of John Barrientos.
Santa was arrested late Saturday night.
Barrientos was found stabbed multiple times in a space between two East Boston homes early Friday morning.
Authorities say he had other injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police think the victim was stabbed in a nearby home and staggered outside.
"Veteran investigators said this was among the grisliest crime scenes they'd ever encountered," Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.
Santa is due back in court on July 27.
