According to a criminal complaint, there were at least five people in the home at the time for a party. 

One witness said Nguyen and the victim had been arguing for much of the evening. At one point, the witness said he saw Nguyen walk away from Truong, headed toward the kitchen. The witness then went out to the garage to smoke a cigarette.

Shortly thereafter, he heard the victim screaming and found him bleeding in the living room when he went back inside. He said, "Hong stabbed me." According to prosecutors, Nguyen was referred to by the name "Hong."

An eight-inch kitchen knife was found near the victim's body. According to prosecutors, it was one of only two knives in the home. 

Nguyen was in court Tuesday, Oct. 4 for a bail/bond hearing. Cash bond was set at $500,000.
