Deadly Hempstead stabbing suspect appears in court
An undocumented immigrant accused of fatally stabbing a man in Hempstead was back in court for a conference on Friday.
Authorities say Jose Ortiz Trochez, 18, stabbed Juan Gabriel Chic Sian in a park behind the Laundry Palace on Clinton Street last week.
Detectives say it happened after the men got into a fight over a bottle of liquor.
They say Trochez is from Honduras and had been in Nassau County for only two weeks.
