Suspect arraigned in Stratford stabbing

Abraham Machuca was arraigned today in Monday?s stabbing in Stratford.

Machuca is accused of attempted murder and is being held on $750,000 bond.

Kameraj's family says that Machuca showed up at the house with flowers on what would have been their anniversary in an attempt to get back together. Instead, he found Font in her bedroom and they claim Font pulled out the knife.
