Erico Montalvo showed no emotion as he was charged with the murder on Monday.

The Afghan veteran was stabbed after coming to his friend’s aid.

Someone needs to tell the race mob that veterans’ lives matter, too.

The Providence Journal reported, via Weasel Zippers:

A local man who just turned 18 is charged with the murder of an Army veteran and the stabbing of his friend in a Walgreens parking lot early Saturday.

Erico Montalvo, of 10 Pocasset Ave., wore no expression as he was led handcuffed into District Court early Friday morning to face the charges. The timing, coincidentally, was just before the funeral Mass for 26-year-old Colby Mendonca of Pawtucket.

Mendonca and his friend, Russell Gleason, 25, were in the parking lot behind the Walgreens at 533 Elmwood Ave. just before 2 a.m. when they got into an argument with strangers, according to police. The argument became a fight that left Gleason badly injured and Mendonca dead.

Special Assistant Attorney General Meg McDonough told Magistrate Joseph Ippolito that Montalvo admitted to Providence investigators that he’d been at the scene and had stabbed both men.

Montalvo was charged with murder and assault with a dangerous weapon, both felonies. No plea was entered, and the magistrate ordered Montalvo held without bail, pending a hearing on July 28.

Montalvo’s lawyer, Chad Bank, declined comment outside the courtroom.

Mendonca’s family said he’d served a tour in Afghanistan in the Infantry and was discharged last fall. He is survived by a 3-year-old daughter.
