The suspect in a fatal stabbing at Eastgate Mobile Home Park in November is undergoing a competency evaluation.

Jason Lee Trevino, 24, faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Antonio Torres. The competency evaluation is expected to determine whether or not Trevino is competent to stand on trial. It will be reviewed in court on Thursday, June 29.

On Nov. 1, Brighton police responded to Eastgate mobile home park around 1 a.m. They found Torres unresponsive and bleeding from several knife wounds outside of a mobile home. He was taken by ambulance to the University of Colorado Hospital, where he died in surgery. Authorities said Trevino and Torres had been involved in an altercation earlier that night.

It isn't the first time a man has been stabbed and killed at Eastgate. Francisco Javier Moran, 22, was killed Thanksgiving Day 2012. Moran identified his assailant, Hector Alvarez Martinon, before he lost consciousness, according to police. He was stabbed 64 times in the head with a screwdriver, according to information presented at his trial.

A jury convicted Alvarez Martinon of first-degree murder. He is serving a life sentence in prison without parole.
