Brothers charged with murder in connection with Mission District stabbing

Two brothers have been charged with murder for the stabbing death of a man in the Mission District in June, according to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.

Daniel Cauich was booked into county jail earlier this week for allegedly killing Larry Peevey on June 5 at Mission and 16th streets. The 55-year-old man was stabbed in the torso.

Cauich has since been charged with murder, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury.

His brother, Header Cauich, was previously charged with the same counts.

Police arrested the first suspect, 27-year-old Jose Poot, in June. He has also since been charged with murder, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury.

The trio allegedly attacked Peevey with two knives and a hatchet. Poot is alleged to have struck the fatal blow.
