Ventura County – Deputies arrested a man for killing his brother after a fatal altercation between them.The fatal stabbing occurred more than a year ago. It resulted in the arrest of 62-year-old Luis Aceves on charges of murder and the use of a deadly weapon.

Things went badly for Aceves and his 55-year-old brother Gilbert Aceves on the morning of April 6, 2017. That was when “a physical altercation” ended with an ambulance rushing Gilbert to Camarillo’s Los Robles Hospital. There he died as the result of “multiple stab wounds.”

Luis  also went to the hospital for injuries sustained in the fight with his brother. The next day he was out of the hospital.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes Bureau and the Camarillo Police Department Special Enforcement Unit initiated an investigation into the circumstances leading up to Gilbert’s killing. During the course of the investigation, the activities of Luis “were closely monitored” and he was discovered living in Washington State not long afterward.

One year later, in April 2018, VCSD Major Crimes detectives, working with Washington’s King County Sheriff’s Office, determined “the homicide was an act of murder with malice aforethought on the part of Luis.”

Authorities then presented evidence to that effect to the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office. They issued a federal warrant for the arrest of Luis in conjunction with the crime.

Investigators discovered Luis in Camarillo on August 12, 2018. The following day detectives contacted him and took him into custody.  He remains in custody for the aforementioned charges with his bail set at $3,000,000.
