A homeless man was charged Thursday with capital murder for the stabbing death of a man in Hollywood.
Alex Conn Vasquez, 23, was ordered to be held without bail while awaiting arraignment Friday in connection with the killing of Jimmy Bradford, 47, about 8 a.m. Monday near Hollywood Boulevard and Bronson Avenue.
Vasquez allegedly stabbed Bradford multiple times in the back after getting into an altercation with him, according to prosecutors.
The murder charge includes the special circumstance allegation of murder during the commission of a robbery, along with a knife use allegation.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office will decide later if it will seek the death penalty against Vasquez, arrested Tuesday by Los Angeles police.
