Murder Trial Date Set In Roommate Stabbing

The second-degree murder trial of a man who allegedly stabbed his roommate to death in November 2011 in Greeneville is scheduled in September.

Huerman Hernandez Sanchez, 23, formerly of the Crestview Terrace Apartments on Crestview Drive, appeared Friday before Third Judicial District Criminal Court Judge John F. Dugger Jr. and waived his arraignment, court officials said.

The trial was set for Sept. 16 by Judge Dugger.

Sanchez remains held on $200,000 bond in the Greene County Detention Center.

Police said the stabbing victim, 20-year-old Francisco Ruiz, lived in the same apartment as Sanchez.

Sanchez was indicted on the second-degree murder charge last week by a Greene County Criminal Court Grand Jury.

Ruiz was stabbed "multiple times, causing his death," according to the indictment of Sanchez.

The men had only lived together for several days at the time of the stabbing incident on Nov. 9, 2011, Greeneville police said.

Ruiz and Sanchez argued before Ruiz was stabbed in the torso area, police said. Both men had apparently been drinking before the stabbing, police added.

Sanchez and Ruiz are Mexican nationals and worked together at the Asian Express restaurant on East Andrew Johnson Highway.

Sanchez was assigned a public defender after his initial appearances in General Sessions Court.
