49-year-old man jailed for fatal stabbing

MURRIETA – A 49-year-old Chino man remained jailed today in connection with a fatal stabbing.

Concepcion Laboy and Rumondo Huerta, 46, of Santa Ana, got into a fight Tuesday night after a day of collecting donations for Santa Ana-based United Restoration Ministries, Murrieta police Sgt. Jim Ganley said.

“Apparently they've had a history of not getting along,'' Ganley said, adding that the suspect told officers the victim had harangued him for not collecting enough money on the street.

The two were outside Big Lots at 25260 Madison Ave. when the stabbing occurred about 5:30 p.m., and Huerta was found in white van with a “silver object'' stuck in his neck and knife wounds on his body, Ganley said.

Investigators believe the object was a knife but it was buried so deep inside Huerta's neck there was only a little more than a half-inch of handle showing, Ganley said.

Laboy was arrested on suspicion of murder and jailed in lieu of $1 million bail. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance in the case Friday.

The ministry serves recovering drug addicts, Ganley said.

    i am a part of u.r.m. ministries. I have been involved with urm 14yrs. This is the first incident that has been know when a person is actually killed. The victim has been with the ministry many years….On the flip side to the incident…Men and Women who choose to be apart of the work that urm offers working with the drug addicts take a chance each and every day,,,no one knows the background of a man or woman who comes into the men or women’s home…We must trust God 100%…I know from experience that many times new converts do not have a work history and it has nothing to do with not making enough money but rather did you attempt to witness and put forth effort to the cause…of winninng souls if someone wasn’t out there fundraising there would be no way of knowing about the program….Also the church and men/women’s home is not government funded so we must go out and push….
    In any event even if the brother was told “you didn’t make enough money” is not cause to Kill….’Well done good and faithful servant Mando…your labor was not in vain…Many soul will continue to be reached You are a testimony and your death will not be forgotten…condolences to the family…Martha Oliver
