Guam - It was a busy Sunday for the Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division after responding to what appeared to be a family feud that turned deadly.

Jet Valencia told KUAM News, "I've been here about 15 years." And according to the Astumbo Gardens resident, it was the first time his neighbor across the street had a large gathering at their house.  They'd been living there for over a year. "Last night before I left there was a lot of cars a lot of people kids playing it's a party - I was surprised this morning that something happens," Valencia said.

Just after midnight early Sunday morning police received a report about a disturbance along Kamute Loop in Dededo. GPD's Officer AJ Balajadia said, "When they arrived there was an individual that had been stabbed and non-responsive." Its believed an alcohol fueled fight amongst family led to the death of a 37-year-old man, and another 35-year-old man in stable condition at GMH. "I believe it was an altercation about sort of these members giving or providing more assistance to the home it just kind of became heated with you know you stay here can you contribute a little more."

A knife fight ensued. Splatters of blood could be seen on the walls of the home's exterior, a sign of the violence that took place. "I believe the suspect lives in the house," said Balajadia.

Friday Suda was arrested on charges of aggravated murder, aggravated assault, family violence, use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, reckless conduct and terrorizing. He was booked and confined.

As for neighbors like Valencia, they're left in shock about what happened, saying, "And I don't have a problem with them they're quiet sometimes the kids come over and play they do their own business I never had a problem with them 636 they always quiet they're just quiet a family."

The magistrates complaint identifies the victim as Joanes Bokun. He was stabbed multiple times in the chest area.

Court documents state when Suda was interviewed by police he told them "whatever they said I did, just blame me and no one else...I can't remember what happen...my mind is going crazy."
