Man charged in Troy homicide also wanted in Maryland stabbing case


TROY — A 20-year-old charged in a fatal weekend stabbing had been released from the Clinton County jail after Maryland officials didn’t follow through on an extradition request and the U.S. Border Patrol dropped their order holding him for being in the country illegally, authorities said Tuesday.

Carlos E. Corrales-Ramirez is accused of killing Jairo Hernandez Sanchez, 28, Saturday by stabbing “the victim several times in the chest, torso and arm area with a large knife to the extent that the victim did not survive his injuries,” according to the felony complaint filed by Troy police in City Court.

Corrales-Ramirez came to Troy after he left the Clinton County jail following the release of a retainer order from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, police said.  A Honduras resident, he was held for being in the country illegally. He had also been accused of stabbing a man in Maryland,  Troy Assistant Police Chief Steven Barker confirmed Tuesday.

Corrales-Ramirez attacked Sanchez at 1:10 p.m. near River and Douw streets during an argument, according to police. Detectives and patrol officers spotted Corrales-Ramirez on Sunday afternoon just blocks from the homicide scene, police said.

Corrales-Ramirez was arraigned Monday on a single count of second-degree murder and sent to the Rensselaer County jail without bail.  He is scheduled to appear Friday for a preliminary hearing before Judge Chris Maier.

Corrales-Ramirez was held for 90 days in the Clinton County jail after the U.S. Border Patrol, with the assistance of the State Police, took him into custody March 16 near Champlain in Clinton County, not far from the Canadian border. The U.S. Border Patrol Swanton Sector office along the Canadian border identified Corrales-Ramirez in a March 18 Facebook post as a resident of Honduras.

“On (March 16), Border Patrol Agents and the New York State Police encountered a citizen of Honduras illegally present in the U.S. near Champlain, N.Y., who is wanted for assault with a knife in Maryland. He will be extradited for criminal proceedings,” the post states and provides a link to a news website in Maryland.

Police in Laurel, Md., had identified Corrales-Ramirez as a suspect in a Feb. 21 stabbing attack.

“A male victim was stabbed and transported to the hospital in critical condition,” Laurel police said in a posted blotter release about a Feb. 21 incident at a convenience store in the Washington D.C. suburb. Laurel police did not have further details Tuesday. The victim’s age was given as 23.

In response to Times Union questions, Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie described in an email what happened with Corrales-Ramirez.
