ARVADA, Colo. — On Wednesday, after a week-long trial, a Jefferson County jury found a Denver man guilty in a fatal Arvada stabbing.
The jury returned a guilty verdict Wednesday for Abdu Latif Kazembe Abunantambu-El, 53, in the 2012 stabbing death of Levi Johnson, according to the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
On Aug. 24, 2012, Arvada Police were dispatched to 5840 Pierce St in Arvada at approximately 7:40 p.m., said the DA’s Office. There, police found 52-year-old Levi Johnson in front of the house bleeding — he had been beaten and stabbed repeatedly.
Earlier that night, Johnson and his wife were at the residence of Christine Kernan on Piece Street when Abunantambu-El, also known as Paul McKnight, arrived and forced himself into the home, said the DA’s Office.
