Two suspects in fatal Arcata stabbing plead guilty
EUREKA- Two of the three charged in connection with the fatal stabbing death of an Arcata chef plead guilty to misdemeanor assault Monday.
Sophia Rocheleau and Nicholas Stoiber entered a guilty plea in a Humboldt County Courtroom, almost one year after the incident. Both were sentenced to three years of probation, 50 hours of community service and ordered to pay restitution fees.
Both face lesser charges than Juan Ferrer who is accused of stabbing the victim, 50-year-old Douglas Anderson-Jordet, in the heart. Rocheleau is accused of kicking him and Stoiber is accused of punching him. Originally, they all faced homicide charges when they were arrested in December of last year.
Multiple victim impact letters were read in court written by family members of Anderson-Jordet. As they were read Rocheleau and Stoiber remained quiet, looking forward. Ferrer smiled occasionally and shook his head at the statements that were read. In one letter a family member of Anderson-Jordet thanked Stoiber for his remorse and his cooperation with authorities.
Ferrer remains in custody, he faces charges for murder.
