A man accused of fatally stabbing his Naval officer brother plead not guilty during his arraignment Tuesday afternoon.
Jonathan "Jake" Tenorio, 25, was from Guam and served as a U.S. Navy officer. Zachary was arrested two days after police found his brother fatally injured by a stab wound.
The district attorney's office claimed Zachary stabbed Jonathan with a six-inch kitchen knife during an “alcohol-fueled rage.” Zachary then left the scene and did not immediately call for help, said prosecutors. Police discovered Jonathan’s body the next day after Zachary made a 911 call.
Zachary has no prior record and was finishing his last year of college before the incident, lawyers said on Friday. He has been charged with murder with a knife.
Prosecutors called Zachary “dangerous” and requested a $3 million bail. The judge set Zachary’s bail at $1.5 million and he will reappear in court later this month.
Jonathan's body is being shipped back to Guam for the funeral on Friday, according to Pacific News Center. He will be buried with full military honors.
