“We were good, we were having a good moment and we were drinking a couple beers and he was alright when the young man reach there, which is my nephew. He arrive with his car and then he entered the house and he was there and I even present the two of them. There were two of my sisters-in-law watching TV and the guy that did this, he went to see one of my sisters-in-law because they have a baby.  They were talking and I told the man I am going for some cigarettes and I enter my house.   When I come out, I saw that the deceased was with my wife and he was standing with one piece of stick. And then I see he can’t move and I say, what happened to you Daniel and he didn’t answer me. And then I see he drop down. But before he drop down I saw my nephew was coming toward him, so I push him and I told him, if you come here just to do trouble, go out of my house, I chase him out. And then when the man drop, I get in a hurry and I went to see what happened. And when he drop, he only tell me two times; ih stab me. Maybe he thought that the deceased went to see his girlfriend or something like…he get jealous. Before he [Cano] left, he told one of my sisters-in-law that three-six-four left and he say tomorrow we are going to drink it.”
