Hearing is set in video game murder

A PRE-TRIAL hearing is set for Friday in the case of a man who allegedly fatally stabbed his roommate in Huntington Beach.

A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Friday in connection with the case of Alexandre Louis Antal, who is accused of the stabbing murder of his roommate in their Huntington Beach home.

According to the Orange County District Attorney, Antal was playing video games with Michael Urso, 32 on July 17, 2012 when he allegedly fatally stabbed the victim with a knife and fled the scene.

Other people living in the home heard screaming and rushed to his aid, calling 911, but the victim died at the scene. At about 3:45 a.m., Huntington Beach police located and arrested the defendant at the Santa Ana River Bridge, recovering a knife on the ground a few feet from him.

The hearing is set in Central Justice Center in Santa Ana at 9 a.m.
