TWENTYNINE PALMS – A man being held on murder charges is scheduled to face a court date on Monday.

Carlos Daniel Herrera, 40, of Twentynine Palms, is accused of stabbing a man to death in neighboring Yucca Valley. He was arrested less than a day after reportedly committing the crime.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were summoned to a distress call early on September 14. A female told authorities that her boyfriend had been stabbed and needed medical attention.

Morongo Basin Sheriff’s deputies responded to that location, 7600 block of Cibola Trail, arriving to discover an unidentified adult man suffering from apparent stab wounds. When medical personnel arrived, they pronounced the man had dead at the scene.

Deputies were able to get a description of the possible suspect, along with the car he was driving.

Shortly after midnight on September 15, deputies located the car, conducted a traffic stop and identified Herrera as the stabbing suspect. He was arrested at 63995 Twentynine Palms Highway at 12:15 a.m., according to reports.

Originally, Herrera’s name was not disclosed. When he had been taken into custody, about 17 hours after the stabbing had occurred, law enforcement released his identity.

The victim’s name, still withheld pending family notification, lived in Yucca Valley, according to reports.
Sgt. Greg Myler and Det. Michael Warrick, part of the Sheriff’s Homicide Investigators team, is conducting the case, according to a release.

Herrera is expected to appear at Morongo Superior Court on Monday, facing murder charges.
