Man who allegedly stabbed his co-worker fails to appear in court
SPRINGDALE, Ohio (WXIX) - The man who allegedly stabbed his co-worker at a restaurant was scheduled to appear in court on Saturday morning, but did not show.
Jan Dela-Pe-Tolentino is being accused of fatally stabbing his co-worker in the neck at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse at Tri-County Mall on Friday, according to police.
First responders tried to give the victim medical treatment where he later died in the hospital, police said.
According to court documents, Dela-Pe-Tolentino stabbed the victim because “a witch told him that the other man was going to shoot him in the head with a gun.”
Dela-Pe-Tolentino has multiple charges against him, including murder and possession of drugs, court documents said. A judge set Dela-Pe-Tolentino’s bond at $500,000.
