Posted Sept. 28, 2009, 4:11 p.m.
Alton Mixon, a 51-year-old black man, was stabbed to death Monday, Sept. 28, in his house in the 14100 block of South Albertson Avenue in an area of unincorporated Los Angeles County surrounded by Compton, according to coroner's officials.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Mitch Loman said Mixon was fatally stabbed during an argument with his brother Joe Mixon, 47. Sheriff's deputies arrested Joe Mixon the same day. He has been charged with his brother's murder and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment last week. His bail has been set at $1 million, and he is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Oct. 15.
Loman said the stabbing happened about 4 p.m., and Alton Mixon was pronounced at the scene just minutes later.
