A 20-year-old Fall River man has been held without bail in the stabbing death of 58-year-old Antonio Santos.

Jordan Gottlieb pleaded not guilty this afternoon and was held without bail.

Gottlieb was arrested last night on Rodman Street in the vicinity of the Stop & Shop grocery store on an unrelated warrant out of New Bedford, and was officially charged with murder this morning. The defendant will be arraigned today in Fall River District Court by Assistant District Attorney Danielle Pixley.

On Sunday night shortly before 9:15 p.m., Fall River Police responded to a report of a stabbing victim just outside of Latino’s Cafe. When first responders arrived, they located the victim, later identified as Antonio Santos, 58, of Fall River suffering from apparent stab wounds. Santos was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital, where he died during surgery shortly before midnight.

According to ABC6, prosecutors stated that Santos and Gottlieb reportedly had a brief argument outside of the bar and then parted ways.

Gottlieb was later seen back at the area and attacking Santos with his own knife. Santos was found on the ground covered in blood with a taser and folding knife near him.

The District Attorney’s Office believes that the pair knew each other.
