Carlos Montaya Case

A 16-year-old Sparks boy has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the stabbing death of his neighbor that took place in September of 2014.

The Washoe County District Attorney’s Office says Carlos Antonio Montoya was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday, Jan. 14, 2016, in Washoe County District Court by Judge Jerome Polaha for the stabbing death of his neighbor, 36-year-old Brian Marshall.

Montoya had been charged with one count of Second Degree Murder with a Deadly Weapon and pleaded guilty in October 2015. The sentence ensures Montoya will serve a minimum of 12 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.

The D.A.’s Office says Montoya was 15 at the time of the stabbing and was a documented gang member.

It happened September 1, 2014 when the Sparks Police Department responded to a call of a stabbing on 11th Street in downtown Sparks. When officers arrived, they found Marshall, who was with his wife and two small children, with a stab wound to his chest. He died shortly after being transported to a hospital.

Detectives quickly identified Montoya as a suspect and it was determined that Montoya and another juvenile had approached Marshall, who was his neighbor and a former family friend, while the victim was standing in front of his home. Montoya and Marshall argued, and Montoya pulled a knife, reportedly to intimidate Marshall.

According to the DA’s office, Montoya later claimed Marshall mocked him, telling Montoya that he was acting like the boy’s father, who several years prior had stabbed a man. Marshall’s reference to Montoya’s father enraged him and Montoya stabbed Marshall once in the chest killing him.

Carlos Montoya was charged as an adult in the case, which took place prior to a change in Nevada law that removed the automatic charging of juveniles as adults accused of murder or attempted murder. Current law requires the District Attorney’s Office to pursue certification as adults of juveniles 13 to under 16 years old in cases of murder or attempted murder.
