East Boston man charged with Saturday-morning stabbing in drunken money dispute

Boston Police report a man was found stabbed in the parking lot of La Chiva Restaurant, 259 Bennington St. around 6:40 a.m. Saturday. He was taken to Mass. General with life-threatening injuries.

Rony Ernesto Aguino, 30, was arrested not long after on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office:

Aguino allegedly made post Miranda statements indicating that he and the victim were drinking together in a nearby apartment when he accused the victim of stealing money from him and that he stabbed the victim during a brief altercation

East Boston District Court Judge Kenneth Fiandaca set bail at $75,000 and ordered Aguino to stay away and have no contact with the victim and any witnesses, wear a GPS monitor, remain within 15 miles of Boston, surrender his passport, abide by a curfew and stay away from the area of Bennington Street where the stabbing happened, the DA's office reports.

Innocent, etc.

It was a lot cooler...

By on

... when I read it quickly and it said 'drunken monkey dispute.'

Now, less so. Significantly less so.


I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one who misread it that way.

Hey $100

By on

Is worth $10,000 in court cost as long as you can keep your pride and tax payer are paying for your defense. #streetcred

Include me in the mix....

There is a bargame (one of those little arcade machines in some bars) that has a game called 'drunk monkey'. I thought that is what confused me.
