Alfred Edward Burton, 50

Alfred Burton, a 50-year-old black man, died Tuesday, Oct. 12, a day after he was stabbed in the 3100 block of North Gary Avenue in Pomona, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Authorities received a call about a fight in progress on Oct. 11 at 11:11 p.m., said Pomona Police Department Sgt. Duane Leonard. When police arrived, they found no fight; however Burton was discovered unresponsive on the ground.

Paramedics were called and Burton was taken to a hospital where he remained until his death the next morning, Leonard said. Coroner's officials determined Burton died from a stab wound to the leg.

On Oct. 13, police arrested Harry Glaser, a 51-year-old white man, and Shannon King, a 25-year-old white woman, in connection with Burton's death. Glaser was charged with murder and King was charged with being an accessory after the fact, Leonard said.

Both Glaser and King are transients, Police Department officials said.

Glaser is being held at the North County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1.065 million bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 9 in Superior Court in Pomona. King is being held in lieu of $500,000 at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood. She is scheduled to appear at the Pomona Superior Court on Nov. 1.

Anyone with additional information about the case is asked to contact Det. A. Bebon or M. Lang at (909) 620-2095.
