Two Hempstead cousins have been accused of killing a third man from the village last week.
Nassau County police arrested Manuel Antonio Gavarrete, 20, Jose Lisandro Gavarrete, 32, and charged both with second-degree murder.
Homicide Squad detectives said the duo fatally stabbed 23-year-old Herzon AlvaraGdo, also known as Jose Gutierrez, in the torso during a fight on the corner of Main Street and West Columbia Street early Wednesday morning.
The victim ran to Main Street, where he collapsed before he was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
Manuel was arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead and Jose will be arraigned Monday.
