    Default MMA fighter kills 1 man and injures 3 others who broke into his home

    Monday, January 6 2014, 04:21 PM MST By: Melissa Gundersen LAS CRUCES, N.M. --
    New details are released in the case of a northwest Las Cruces man who fought off four men to protect himself, his fiancée and their 2-year-old son. According to deputies, two days ago, four men broke into a home on King James Road. It left one man dead, one man injured and landed two others in jail. On Friday, KFOX 14 crews went to the house to speak with the victim, Joseph Torrez, but no one was home.

    "Last night they had about four or five trucks over there just throwing stuff in. Just vacating the premises," said neighbor David Cooper. Neighbors said they're still confused what happened. "They were all nice and quiet and I don't know what happened," said Cooper. KFOX 14 got a hold of the arrest affidavit. Deputies said it all started with an argument between Torrez and four other men. One of the men, Leonard Calvillo, called Torrez on the phone. The arrest affidavit said, Calvillo threatened to go to Torrez's home. The affidavit quoted Calvillo when talking to Torrez saying, "I will kill you and your family."

    Shortly after that threat, Torrez's home was seen with a broken glass door and broken window. Deputies said Calvillo along with Nathan Avalos, Sal Garces and Raymond Garces broke into the home. They said Torrez's fiancée tried to hold the four men back, but was unable to. The arrest affidavit reveals the men tossed furniture and then physically attacked Torrez. "We heard the sirens and the lights and we looked outside and saw the cop cars," said Cooper.

    Deputies said Torrez was able to fight off all four men, protecting himself and his family. Neighbors said what alarmed them the most was a body bag lying in the street. "We were a little shocked about it because normally this neighborhood is really quiet," said Cooper. Deputies said Sal Garces died from stab wounds. What appears to be blood stains can still be found on Torrez's property. Avalos was taken to the hospital. Calvillo and Raymond Garces were arrested and face multiple charges including aggravated battery and aggravated burglary. Messages to one of the defendant's family members weren't returned.

    He knived a presumably unarmed guy to death.
    All about this is just tragic and I can detect not much worth of admiring here.

    However we crazy Europeans, when someone breaks into our house usually don't celebrate that as a rare chance opportunity to kill someone.

    Watch him get a lifetime in prison anyways - because justice system!!!

    If a lower-class worker even tries to trespass on a rich white guy's agricultural property in a developing country, he gets shot. These guys made explicit death threats, broke into his home, went after his children, overpowered his wife, and attacked Torrez. Torrez fought back. What part of this does not make sense? Oh - I don't reaaaally wanna stay alive or have any of my children live, so I guess I'll just sit still and let a bunch of thugs beat me up so they can murder my wife and children...

    Moral of the story: don't break into someone's house threatening to murder their family.

    Yeah I guess he's the bad guy in this story. He could've used his obvious ninja skills to subdue them and tie them up and wait for the police to arrive. Rational thought is a priority when 4 guys break into your home after threatening to kill you and your family.

    Sounds like the guys lawyer will have to send the deputies a bottle of scotch each. Awfully convenient spin on the story.
    Usually guys who get into fights like that are not very impressive people. Getting people so mad at you, that they want to murder you (brilliant execution, especially the warning, proper whiskey tango redneckin going on here), you are generally at least one of two things, a massive asshole, or a massive idiot, but for all I know he could be swell. I wonder, if alcohol played a role... In case the attacker was drunk, the fiance was in prior direct contact and not hurt there is little to construe a plausible threat for his life. Where they driving over, to strangle him barehanded? Looks like a bunch of certified morons to me. Just saying.

    Also rational thought is always a priority, because irrational thought kinda sucks, lol.
    Well don't take it too hard, it's just that I am personally not finding the story very heroic.

    I'm not saying he's the bad guy. I'm saying a story that ends in murder and assault shouldn't make you happy.

    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Shame he wasn't able to finish off the others. Even more of a shame that the justice system won't fry them.
