NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — A New Bedford man has been arrested in a fatal stabbing that was initially reported to dispatchers as a possible overdose.
The Bristol County District Attorney’s office says 20-year-old David Antonetty was arrested without incident in Springfield by a team of state troopers Thursday morning.
Authorities say New Bedford Police received a 911 call early Wednesday about a potential overdose. When medics arrived, they discovered that 47-year-old Angel Camacho was actually suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The DA’s office said Antonetty was being transported back to the area and will be arraigned sometime Thursday in New Bedford District Court on a murder charge.
It was not known whether Antonetty has a lawyer.
