After a thorough review of the evidence, the Larimer County District Attorney's office has decided not to accept charges in the April 7, 2013 stabbing of Kenneth Sobrero, 65, of Fort Collins. Mr. Sobrero died April 20, 2013 from injuries received during the stabbing. The District Attorney's office did not believe there was sufficient evidence to refute a self-defense claim. 

Larimer County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the 2900-block of East Mulberry at 4:24 p.m. on April 7, 2013 on a report from firefighters and medical personnel that they were transporting a 65-year-old male stabbing victim to a local hospital.  
 
Upon arrival, investigators discovered that Kenneth Sobrero and his 59-year-old male roommate had been involved in a physical altercation over an argument related to cleaning the home they shared with others. The roommate also suffered injuries during the fight.
 
The Larimer County Coroner has ruled Mr. Sobrero's death a homicide resulting from complications from a stab wound to the abdomen.
