OAKLAND — A judge is set to review prosecution evidence against a city resident who was arrested and charged last year in a 2019 fatal stabbing, court records show.
Marcus Hunt, 46, was charged last June with murdering 42-year-old Eduardo Chavez, who was fatally stabbed shortly after midnight of Aug. 6, on the the 2500 block of Courtland Avenue in Oakland. Hunt was identified as a suspect through “forensics” and “multiple witnesses,” police said in court records at the time of Hunt’s arrest.
Police allege that Hunt and Chavez argued before the stabbing but haven’t released more details. Hunt also faces two counts of being a felon in possession of firearms that were allegedly found when authorities served a search warrant at his home on Brookdale Avenue after the stabbing.
According to court records, Hunt is set for a preliminary hearing on April 27, where a superior court judge will review evidence against him and determine if there’s enough to order Hunt to stand trial. Hunt has pleaded not guilty.
Hunt has been in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on a no-bail hold since his arrest last June 10, court records show.
