UPDATE: Brothers plead not guilty to killing Vista man in Bonsall

Two brothers, 27-year-old Dionicio Miguel Figueroa and 38-year-old Carlos Miguel Figueroa, pleaded not guilty this week to stabbing and killing a Vista man, 39-year-old Manuel Aguirre, in Bonsall last Thursday, Feb. 23. They are being held in the Vista jail without bail and face 25-years-to-life.

The call came in at about 1:30 p.m., Feb. 23. Deputies from the Fallbrook Sheriff’s Station received a radio call of a man assaulted with a knife in the 5200 block of Mission Road. When the deputies arrived on scene, they found Aguirre with a puncture wound to his upper chest. Paramedics arrived and transported the victim to the hospital where, according to the Sheriff’s department, despite hospital staff efforts, the victim was pronounced deceased.

Sheriff’s reported that they searched the area where the assault occurred and located two male subjects hiding in the nearby brush. Witness statements and video surveillance obtained from local businesses confirmed the subjects detained are the suspects involved in the incident.

Sheriff’s Homicide Unit responded and assumed responsibility of the investigation. They reported that the relationship between the victim and suspects was unknown at the time, however NBC7 reported that family members in the courtroom accused the Figueroa brothers of often trying to take money from day laborers and beating them up if they didn’t get money.

A cousin of Aguirre, Selena Gonzalez, was reported by NBC7 to say she believed Aguirre stood up for a young man who they were “harassing” and Aguirre was stabbed in retaliation.

NBC7 also reported that two teenage daughters of Aguirre were in the courtroom and a third daughter is still in Guatemala with their mother.
