WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Police arrested two men in connection to a deadly stabbing.
The suspects, Colton Kloepfer, 20, and Maison Pullman, 19, were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on murder charges.
Deputy Chief Kent Stokes with the West Valley City Police Department said a stabbing was reported at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday night near Peachwood Park.
“When they got to Peachwood park, an altercation occurred, and we believe that’s the scene where the stabbing occurred,” Stokes said.
Stokes said Carter suffered multiple stab wounds and was transported to Jordan Valley Hospital West where he died of his injuries early Wednesday morning.
Following Carter’s death, Kloepfer and Pullman were arrested at a home in Kearns.
ABC4 News spoke with neighbors who live near Peachwood Park and they said it’s concerning, but they still feel safe.
“It surprises me that that actually happened right there,” said Mark Martinez, a resident in the neighborhood for nearly 30 years. “We have so many young kids in this neighborhood. Young families and I kinda fear for them.”
“I take my granddaughter down there to the park so it’s horrifying to think that kind of stuff is going on,” said another neighbor, Cynthia.
“We’re cautious but I don’t feel unsafe. This has been a good neighborhood as long as we’ve lived here,” said LeAnne, who lives in the home with Cynthia.
The women are both choosing to withhold their last names and said they recently moved to the area and don’t like hearing about stabbings so close to home.
