MAYVILLE — The murder case for a Jamestown man will be heard by a Chautauqua County Grand Jury on July 29.
That’s according to Acting Jamestown Police Chief Tim Jackson, who was asked by Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist to provide an update to the City Council during a Work Session meeting Monday evening.
Jamestown Police charged Carl Sorenson, 28, with second-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Brandon Holland who was stabbed in the chest while walking on the sidewalk along North Main Street between East 4th and East 5th Streets around 10:14 p.m. July 6.
Holland was taken to UPMC Chautauqua Hospital where he died of his injuries.
Sorenson, according to police, is also a New York State Parolee. Officers say he was taken into custody July 7 by investigators at his apartment on Washington Street in Jamestown.
Investigators say additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
This was not a random act of violence and police say is likely a result of a prior dispute.
Sorenson is scheduled to appear virtually in Jamestown City Court Friday morning at 9 a.m. for a preliminary hearing. He was remanded to Chautauqua County Jail during a preliminary arraignment last Wednesday.
Jackson was also asked to speak about the shooting on Cherry Street in the City of Jamestown last Tuesday. He says the department hasn’t located any suspects or victims in the case.
