A story for every victim

Terrell Bradford Nunnery, 26

Terrell Nunnery, a 26-year-old black man, died Wednesday, Feb. 17, about half an hour after he was stabbed in the chest in the 41000 block of East 154th Street in Lake Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The incident leading to Nunnery's stabbing death began late Tuesday when he had an argument with a youth and two men while visiting a friend's house, said Det. Dameron Peyton of the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau. Nunnery was stabbed. He was taken to Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster where he was pronounced dead at 1:09 a.m, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

According to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s felony complaint, the three individuals involved in the assault were Mark Broussard, 17-year-old black youth; Marcell Broussard, an 18-year-old black man; and Mark Terry Broussard, a 20-year-old black man.

On Feb. 19, Mark Broussard was taken into custody and charged with murder, and Marcell Broussard was charged with a single count of accessory to murder after the fact. Three days later, Mark Terry Broussard was arrested and charged with a single count of accessory to murder after the fact. Peyton, the homicide detective, said Marcell and Mark Terry Broussard are brothers. Peyton declined to say how Mark Broussard is related to them because he is a minor.

All three defendants were arraigned Feb. 22 and pleaded not guilty to all charges in court in Antelope Valley, according to a spokesperson from the D.A.’s office.

A preliminary hearing scheduled for March 4 was postponed until March 26. Following the hearing, Marcell Broussard posted $20,000 bail and was released from jail March 5, said the spokesperson from the D.A.’s office.

According to County Jail records, Mark Terry Broussard is still in custody at the North County Correctional Facility. His bail is set at $20,000.

Although Mark Broussard is being charged as an adult, since he is a minor, he is being held at an undisclosed juvenile detention center, said a sheriff’s official.

The Times will continue with updates as the case progresses.
